The Case of the Disappearing Episode Two Achievement.

I replayed Half-Life 2: Episode 2 earlier this year, getting all the remaining achievements that I didn't get in my first playthrough. 

So to my surprise, when I was just looking through my Steam list I noticed that I only had 95% (21/22) of the achievements - it tells me I'm missing Neighbourhood Watch. I know that I definitely got all of the achievements in the game, including Neighbourhood Watch. 
So I decided to fire up Episode 2 and double check. Sure enough, in game it tells me I have 100% of the achievements, but on Steam it tells me I have 95%:

Not sure what I should do about this. 
Has anyone had this sort of thing happen before? Is there anything that can be done about it? Could this possibly have something to do with running the Steam Beta? =/

I'd never heard of this before but after a bit of Goggling I've discovered that there are quite a number of people who have run into this issue. It's by no means a recent thing, in fact this issue seems to have been around for quite a long time but unfortunately people seem to be saying that there isn't actually a fix for this and it's something Valve have to sort out on their end. I hope Valve do get this sorted out at some point because it seems to be a pretty major problem and it must be a bummer to run into it.
