Steam error


for some time now, after closing the steam GUI ( this with crossover games 8.1.2-8.1.4, running on OSX 10.6.2 in a virtual desktop) and attempting to close the virtual desktop window I get

SteamshutDownEngine failed with error 2: Steam library has not been initialized.

This is more of an annoyance really, as apps work without a problem. I retried repairing steam (no use, things went well but at some point got "could not poke firewall" error), reinstalled crossover games, reinstalled OSX (for different reasons), still no joy. I do have a working instance of wine 1.1.36 on the same system, and steam GUI has no problem there.
Any advice regarding the matter?


Edit:ouch, just saw the same issue a few posts down..., apologies for bringing this up in a different thread. Looks like some funny hook, as the issue happens upon closing the X window. However, if i start a game inside steam from the start menu shortcut, the X window closes without any error messages.
