comment How do you prevent a DHCP release during shutdown?
Are you really sure that this is what happens? I pretty much doubt that any distro will just release a DHCP lease on shutdown. You can force it with -r, but by default, it shouldn't do that. (Is your leases file writable etc? Checked syslog?)

Maybe the Wiki is useful: headless operation; also there's the source...

Try it like CellProfiler ... > test.txt 2>&1, maybe it's outputting to stderr. (See this for the ordering)

comment Is it possible to run a 10.04 or 12.04 or earlier LTS containerized under LXC or Docker on Trusty?
This mailing list thread (and the linked answer by jpetazzo) could provide some insight.

No need to use install media, there're several docker containers of older Ubuntu releases in the registry.

comment How to set the tab name to an alias hostname of the remote host I'm connected to?
It's probably not quite what you want but it might be worth a look: Try curl http://169.254.169.254/latest/meta-data/public-hostname from inside the VM and see if this value is better suited for a tab name then what hostname gets you. (More about metadata)
