comment What triggers notifications of the form “Bell in session Shell” in KDE?
Thanks! I found the line in the source code of the program I was running that was doing the beep (it was doing fprintf(stderr, "\07")) and got rid of it. Things are much more peaceful now :)

comment What triggers notifications of the form “Bell in session Shell” in KDE?
Yep, that does it, thanks! So, if I understand correctly, the behaviour that triggers this notification is any program running in the terminal sending the character '\a' (ASCII code 7) to standard output/error?

I tried this, but echo -e "\a" does not produce the notification.

@techie007: Both of the above formats are plain-text, they're just different ways of formatting the plain text.

No, I only got that message if the directory was in fact not empty.

The error was: rm: cannot remove '<dir>': Directory not empty.
