comment Run Dropbox as a service on Fedora 15
Nowadays it seems it's (...)/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd instead of (...)/.dropbox-dist/dropbox. Also this does not give systray icon; probably because this does not run dropbox in the context of user session.

comment Ctrl+c in a sub process is killing a nohup'ed process earlier in the script
nohup prevents the process from receiving SIGHUP signal whereas CTRL+C sends SIGINT signal. That's why nohup doesn't have the effect you expected.

comment Less interrupting in less
Why do you think that's the way follow mode works? I think the flow of events is that shell gets CTRL+C and sends SIGINT signal to less which gets this signal asynchronously without listening to keyboard/terminal.

comment Less interrupting in less
It seems that the problem is caused by using signal to interrupt less. Instead, if it were some normal key/shortcut we wouldn't have the problem in the first place. However I guess the need for a signal comes from the fact that process can't use select to wait for input both from a file/pipe and terminal at the same time.

comment Less interrupting in less
It light of the problem raised by OP it seems that decision to use CTRL+C as a way to interrupt less is very unfortunate. Do you know why this specific signal was chosen? Would some other signal be less problematic?

comment nohup output redirection to a different file
GNU nohup says that it'll redirect stdout to a file if you specify nohup command > file Isn't redirection in case of nohup command > file being handled by shell and not nohup? If so then how can nohup take any action based on weather redirection is present or not?

comment How can I determine which process owns a hotkey in Windows?
If Hotkey Explorer reports hotkey as explorer.exe (TaskBar) then probably one of icons on desktop has this hotkey set in its properties.
