comment Mac OS X Lion: What are invalid characters for a file name?
Maybe : is prohibited on Mac OS Classic, but certainly not on Mac OS X—touch foo:bar works perfectly fine.

comment Mac OS X Lion: What are invalid characters for a file name?
Techincally the HFS+ file system does allows all Unicode characters (since it represents names internally as Pascal strings with a 2-byte length), but AFAIK none of the APIs provided by OS X allow you create/open files with a slash '/' or NUL '\0' in them.

Hmm thanks, I'll try to pick up some compressed air tomorrow and see if that helps. What do you mean by "over extended heating and cooling cycles"?

comment overwrite /dev/null with file
There's no way that would be happening unless your script was running as root, and even then it's non-trivial.

No need for this, just use gcc_select.

comment emacs-X11 crashes with arithmetic error on launch
Hmm well I eventually had to reboot for an unrelated reason, and that seemed to fix the problem; I forgot to try just restarting X11 before rebooting.

Solved, see update! You didn't quite provide the final solution, but I'm accepting this since you were very helpful.

Still no luck =(. I rebooted into safe mode and uninstalled the Virtual Keyboard Interface (VKD still wouldn't let me uninstall it) and renamed WacomVKHid.sys (as well as a few others: wacommousefilter.sys, wacompen.sys, and wacomvhid.sys) as you suggested and rebooted. The Device Manager displayed a yellow warning icon next to the VKD and then let me uninstall it, but I'm still getting the error message after doing that and rebooting again. Any other ideas? Thanks for the help so far.

Thanks for the help, but it's sadly not solved (see update).

Oh interesting, that's probably it. Our artists have a couple of those tablets lying around the office, and it's quite possible one of them used this machine at some point in the distant past. Removing the suspect drivers there doesn't seem to have fixed the problem for now, but I haven't tried rebooting yet after that.
