Does this also happen in Desktop mode? Steam has some problems with the Window 
Styles(I sent a mail a few hours ago).

Well, the buttons are " < Back", " Next > " and "Cancel". But that won't help 
much if you can't read the text.

Have you tried to set "ClientSideWithRender" and "ClientSideWithCore" in the 
x11drv Section to false? I have them enabled and if I disable them I can't 
see any text too(just noticed this).
