Is there a way to keep Steam from pausing a DL when firing up another Steam game?

It only does that on actual start up of something. Tabbing out, restarting and tabbing back in usually solves it.

Edit: I are slow.

Yep. And it's still super-annoying you have to do that, because not all games actually handle alt-tabbing all that well. It's a bug that's been in Steam for fucking years, but I guess nobody at Valve is "interested" in fucking fixing it.
