Steam Wallet And Paypal

I post this today with basically one situation that had recently happened to me in mind. Upon purchasing a game with my paypal account My Steam account was later disabled due to my paypal being unverified for whatever reason. Now i got things settled out but It'd be in my best interest for this to not happen again. I do not want to risk losing all my games over one faulty purchase. This steam wallet seems like a perfectly sound idea too me And i have no real objections to the increments of currency you can fund it with. I just want to know if I add funds to the Wallet with my paypal and just keep the funds in the wallet untouched for a bit (under precaution for the next possible part) and my Paypal decides to charge back the funds for whatever reason will the funds in my wallet simply be taken out and nothing done to the rest of my games? Or will my entire account be locked and i be out all of my rightfully purchased games? (Assuming I dont get things fixed in time)

TL;DR
If i add Money to wallet (And not spend it for a bit) through Paypal and paypal (for whatever reason) Charges it back. Will my account be disabled or just the funds be taken away?

I loved using paypal for my purchases but I dont want to risk it all again

Good question, I would also like to hear an official response, I have heard too many horror stories about disabled accounts due to Paypal charge backs, so I just use a Debit Card now though.

I would gladly Use a Debit card if i had one at the time and despite the $5 fee to put money on a greendot moneypak card I found it extremely easy and quick as an alternative.

It will most likely be disabled. Buying Steam Wallet $ is still a transaction, just like buying a game.
