The steam environment sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH with a libtbb.so.2 that is incompatible with our own. This wrapper scripts gives our own library priority. There is a more modern "Steam Linux Runtime" that can be used instead of the "LD_LIBRARY_PATH Steam Runtime" and which launches Blender, but it fails to detect GPU compute libraries. So that was not an option. Ref #107385 Pull Request: #109169
