Steam is incompatible with KDE

When I am start Steam in awesome WM, I am able to play for hours. However, in KDE I see issues like system hangs or steam prodcess becomes zombie. I do not see anything on the journal though. Any idea how to hunt for clues regarding the cause of the issue?

Re: Steam is incompatible with KDE

Thank you for pointing me to the protocol related troubleshooting.

I tried the following experiment:
1. ran steam from command-line and tried to repro the issue without the settings
2. ran steam from command-line and tried to repro the issue with the settings

In both cases, I got crashes. However, the protocol related changes seem to have helped.

I would like to read up on the reason why the fix works (even though partially). Can you please suggest any references ?

The first case had 2 crash dumps and the second one has one.

I would like to understand what exactly is going on so that I can debug further may be.

Thanks.
