Can't type in password

The first time I ran steam it worked great, and I could login and get to halflife.

Now, after I've rebooted, when I try to run steam it seems to work, except when I try to type something the text ends up going to the wrong window (whatever window I had open before rather than steam.)  The end result is that I can't enter in my password.

This seems like a trivial thing that broke, and there might be a config option I can set somewhere to fix it.  Ideas?

Click on your account name first and then *right* click where
your password goes. You should see a [Paste] box pop up.
click on it and you can now enter your password.

This fix doesn't seem to work for me... I'm running Fedora Core 4, CXOffice 4.2.0.

I know this is like a couple years after the post. But for anyone that finds a similar issue like this like I did, I found opening OpenOffice allowed me to type in my username and password on Steam. It's worth a try.
