    Valve just released an updated Steam Client that is causing problems in a lot of games that are using the workshop for content. The symptoms are that content keeps downloading every time you start the Steam Client (and gets erased again when you exit it). Several threads exist describing this problem on the public and developer forums of Steam. We are monitoring the situation, but it is not a bug we can fix on our side. We'll keep everybody posted here (updating this first post).

    We are now talking to Valve about this, who seem to acknowledge the problem (with many games). I'll be back with more news as the story develops.

    This appears to be solved as of now, at least for me, although no official word I can find, yet.

    Valve has confirmed they fixed this issue in their back-end (which means that there is no new version of the Steam Client, the version you have should just work again).

    well build v1109 is doing it, content keeps re-downloading item inventory every time you start the Steam Client. If i unsubscribe it still re-subscribs it. it's mad i tell you, like my PC is defying me.

    Why would you be using 1109? we're up to version 1.1116
