Shower window issue help!
Some interesting points and a common problem as windows are the weakest link in a buildings protection from the elements. If you add another skin to the window you risk increasing condensation which is your main enemy here.
As you have said, the abutment between the frame & the pane of glass is the main entry point for condensation, however it is also the main exit point.
Ventilation & extraction is the key here. If the windows are open during & after the steam is at its most airbourne state you will minimise the damp penetration.
If you have the option, position an automated extractor between the sources of water & the window frame.
