comment Why is “Asking all remaining processes to terminate” failing during shutdown?
No, the text moves by too fast to see, but the list had at least 20 items. This happens about 1 in 3 times I shutdown. It looked similar to what one sees when one types top, but with fewer columns of data.

comment Why did BASH print “bash: cd: write error: Success”?
The /home partition has much space available. I cannot find anything strange in ".bash_history", it is set to read and write only for the owner. Whenever I quit a terminal, the data from that terminal still goes there. Is is possible this came up because I was running multiple terminal windows at the same time?

typeset -f, alias, and which cd all return nothing, and the other files only contain PATH=~/.context/tex/texmf-linux/bin/:$PATH.
