Distro: Gentoo ~AMD64
Driver: Nvidia 195.36.24
Videocard: GTX275
Wine version: 1.1.44 (tried many older versions as well)

Installed using wine msiexec /i steaminstall.msi in a fresh wine prefix. Also tried with winetricks in a fresh prefix. Attempting to make a new account brings on the crash most quickly, which occurs almost instantly when the EULA appears. I've never seen this steam version running under windows, but the EULA appears as a black screen, which could be another symptom.
