comment one sudo for multiple terminals
@chepner - I do not see how that could happen, unless the user entered directly went into a child process that somehow became a session leader, as in daemonizing.

comment What method executes on bash exit via CTRL-D?
NOTE: returning weird characters on exit instead of numbers may result in some other scripts failing when they are not supposed to. exit [number] makes the return value available to the parent. The parent calls wait or waitpid to interpret the result of the child process's exit. This interpretation is based on the lowest eight bits of the return value. exit 0 is success, exit non-zero is considered some kind of failure. Or possibly a warning.

comment rm: .filename not removed: Disc quota exceeded
You can actually use disk in the sense that you have to write to a directory when you call unlink - the syscall rm uses. Over quota means no write access.

comment Why a command launched with nohup isn't able to write file after user logout?
Daniel is talking about autofs - mounting your home directory only when you are logged on. There is no simple workaround for your problem except to ensure you have at least one current interactive process on the box. Create a separate "dummy" session, for example. Or write to files in a known directory like /tmp that does not vanish.

comment old hard drive failing and cannot access files
It has to be either firmware issues in the controller or more likely: problems with one of the disk hardware components. You really should NOT try to "fix" it. Get another disk to copy to, or copy it off to a safe place. You can also pay major money to one of the disk recovery places.
