Now fixed again for 2.3.0.

It wasn't mentioned in the comments previously, but you do need to ensure the "Use alternative launcher for Steam application" checkbox is enabled in Game Options > Windows in order to use this fix (it is on by default, but if you have problems always make sure this is still enabled). You can find this right below the checkbox to enable Steam.
