comment emacs tramp working with gnome-keyring-daemon
According to that variable's doc, it is how many seconds passwords should be cached. Setting to nil disables expiring. Mine is globally set to 16. Emacs won't allow setting it to t.

comment emacs tramp working with gnome-keyring-daemon
While the documentation for password-cache certainly suggests that it would fix my issue, setting it to nil has no effect on the behavior. In fact, even with password-cache set to nil tramp will still cache passwords that aren't even related to gnome-keyring-daemon. For example using tramp to open local files with sudo, the sudo password seems to be cached until I explicitly cleanup the connection (even with a nil password-cache). Perhaps it's a bug?

comment Missing characters when printing in linux
Well, if I include a particular package in the latex preamble, the phi does not print, but also the font changes to a different font (which prints fine). Interestingly, if I use latex to compile the tex file to a dvi instead of a pdf, it prints no problem even with the "bad" version of phi.

comment Missing characters when printing in linux
So to figure out what font that specific character was I recompiled the pdf using the same pdflatex preamble, but only left the single character in the document. The only font listed also shows up in the original pdf, thus I conclude that it is indeed the correct one. Anyway, it is listed as "StandardSymL-Slant_167" it is a Type 1 embedded subset font.

I'll look into that... but why does it show up in the pdf readers, and how can pdftops convert correctly if I am missing fonts?

comment pipe: too many files open renders entire OS completely useless
This did indeed seem to be the case. After running top in one terminal while very carefully starting up the same processes that caused the crash to happen, I was able to see a process with a definite memory leak. I'm still not sure why I was getting the too many files warning i.e. I'm not sure how it was spawning many child processes. However, fixing the leak appears to have solved the problem. Thanks for the help!
