Screenshot crash?
For the past day or so, whenever I try to take a screenshot in-game, it crashes and exits to the desktop. There isn't even a hl2.exe error: it just goes straight to the desktop like nothing happened. Also, this only happens while I'm on a server logged in. If I take a screenshot at the menu, nothing happens. If I have the option set to take a screenshot of the scoreboard at the end of a round, it takes it normally, but, if under any other circumstances, I take a screenshot on a server, regardless of the player count (even on my own server with itemtest loaded), it crashes.

I've tried several fixes: validating the game cache, defragmenting the game cache, deleting some of my existing screenshots (I have thousands of them. :P), but nothing seems to work. I would wait for the next patch, but this issue popped up mid-patch and I have no idea if I should wait for it to come (I'm assuming the new patch will come tomorrow, once Valve retires the hats).

Anyone else had this happen to them? Anyone have a fix for it?

Same problem, it's very annoying. This is a major issue, Valve needs to patch it ASAP.

EDIT: it seems that this is happening on all games that use Steam Overlay

For me, it only happens on TF2. Other games I've played don't have any issues.
