Steam bug deletes files!

To all users of the Linux version of Steam:

DO NOT MESS AROUND WITH YOUR STEAM FILES!

Otherwise you could delete all personal files on your hard drive - and, in the worst case, the files on external storage devices such as USB sticks could be erased.

A mistake in the "Steam.sh" Bash Script causes the bug:

rm -rf "$STEAMROOT/"*

If there is no "Steam data directory", the line will be misunderstood and all personal files will be deleted!
