*Sigh*
I wanted to try my hand at mapping, so I copied my Left 4 Dead 2 Beta installation from my Linux SteamApps folder to my Wine SteamApps folder. Just to be safe, I validated the cache.

So now I'm redownloading all of Left 4 Dead 2 Beta. And I can't play on the already-downloaded Linux version because I can't run two instances of Steam on the same account, even if they're on the same computer and only one has a game open.

What do you guys do when you're bored?

You have two options, but I'm not sure if they are still usable:
1. Enter offline mode on wine account and let it download game, while you are playing on other, logged instance.
2. And I used this one recently: Launch Steam under Wine, begin download, start it under Linux and ignore message asking you to relogin to wine. You wouldn't be able to do anything else with Wine Steam, but download should continue.
