Linux version - game freezes after enemy killed
After killing an enemy (not the first one, about 10th or more) game freezes, freezing whole gnome, CPU of steam's MainThrd process rises to 99% and I have to kill the process. Maybe it's the issue of adding achievements, they're showed in console but don't add to steam. Console output before terminating the process:

(754:Update) Target lost
(304:SetAchievement) killed_1_enemy
(1051:OnDeath) kaboom

Is there any standalone client that doesn't require steam to check if it's steam's issue?

Just run it directly (navigate to your steam folder), without the Steam running. I'll try to fix the hang - i don't sure it happens to anyone else though.

So I couldn't run it without steam running, segfault on loading steam libraries, but I could run it with steam running directly from steam folder without steam seeing this. It fixed the freeze thing so it's probably the achievement thing. It'd be nice to see a fix to that soon, it's always nice to have steam chat in game ;] Thx anyway!

Hmmm I played for some time and it froze on enemy kill again ;/

That's what I get while trying to run it without steam running
disable compiz. use classic gnome , compiz causes lots of issues lol.

It's not a gnome/compiz issue, same thing happens on kde. I'd like to try it without steam running, but steam libraries yell for it.

Does it happen to anyone else? I can't reproduce it. I need to somehow narrow down this issue...

Gawd damn it, I wanna shoot some enemies without killing the process every 10 minutes :[!

Hmm, after latest update of steam it no longer freezes, played for 30 min, killed about 50 ememies and it didn't freeze. I hope that was steam's issue and it will work from now on, yey :D!

For me, it happens each 10 minutes. Actually, the steam's version was 1) linked to old versions of OpenEXR/ILM libraries (*.so.6) and 2) showing pretty bad performance, so I've re-purchased it from official site. So, rev135 build has normal performance but still linked to these old libraries -and it crashes (to launch Polynomial, I just symlinked *.so.6 to *.so.7).

Dmytry, could you please relink against newer OpenEXR (*.so.7)? Maybe this is the problem

(actually, the so-version has been bumped in openexr 1.7.1)
