Ahh, I thought that might be the case about the GCC version... I couldn't get the Steam client to crash with the stock PPA Wine 1.3.35 (which I don't normally use at all). Scott Ritchie really is a top dude!

I must update the AppDB Steam page (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=19444) with some info about winetricks - it's a very useful script!
