Steam in Wine Can't Type in Login Prompt Solution

Don't want to keep this trick to myself. Some of you may have installed steam using wine, but sometimes wine doesn't acknowledge a blinking cursor and you cannot type in the login name or password. The remedy I found is, as the mouse cursor still works, simply click on the "can't login" or "help logging in" button, it'll load a blank screen, simply close that screen and you should have control enough of steam to login at this point.
