Hi Alexandre,

As I have just commented on the bug, I cannot reproduce this bug. And I use steam on an
almost daily basis.

It looks like it's a bug on upstream steam and does not affect all users. Even though we
can patch things on occasion to fix broken packages, we tend to wait for upstream fixes
if the issue is not critical or a fix already exists.

Also, the patch you referred to, is not an actual patch, just a package that creates an
ugly fix, by creating a symlink to libpcre. That's not the right way to fix this issue.
