Valve are hot on the case with fixes and patches, the latest primarily aimed at the VR mode. Also, the Linux version of Team Fortress 2 has has “Improved performance and stability”, which can only be a good thing.
Here are the patch notes:
- Added a new ConVar cl_first_person_uses_world_model to allow this mode to be used outside of VR mode

- Fixed a bug where you could come out of a teleporter facing the wrong way in VR mode
