Steam Problems

I am experiencing two problems w/ Steam:

1) It's always on top of all other windows,on all
workspaces of GNOME, which is very annoying, and makes
it impossible to try HL2. If clicked while HL2 is on startup
screen it will crash the game.

2) If you click on any game, go to Update News, it will crash
every time. If there are Update News when Steam is started, it
will crash (but it will work after that). Here's the output, although it
doesn't look very helpful to me:
