This solution works! Thanks for the links as well. Bounty awarded.

comment Is there a GUI tool or API for remote KVM management for headless machines
Do you mean a web based gui tool? You can of course use virt-manager installed on a machine separate from the headless server. This of course requires X running on the workstation you use to connect to the server. Possibly look into convirt, or proxmox.

This is the old solution. This solution does NOT work on newer systemd based Linux operating systems, such as Fedora 19 or Current Arch. (I just tested it. There is not even a localauthority directory, and creating, the subfolder and the specified file do nothing).

comment pipe command's output to dialog and allow to scroll up
To add to that, less does the same thing, but the output is better imho.

that does work, but this is part of a much larger program that uses dialog; so dialog is really the only requirement here. I have successfully tried this using zenity, but I don't want to port all of my code, and zenity can't run in ncurses mode without X.
