comment How to Reset Forgotten Root Password in Fedora 19 from GRUB
I just encountered an issue with FC19 root password reset. As OP mentions, single-user mode asks for the root password. Further issue - using the 'init=/bin/sh', 'mount -o remount,rw /', 'passwd' method - It not only failed to update the root password properly, but also broke something (I think in policykit) which kept the windowmanager from fully loading on subsequent reboots. Totally baffled about how to fix it now without a reinstall.

comment Is it possible to retrieve the active window process/title in Gnome?
Something as in, `xwininfo -root -children | grep -oEi 'Window id: (?[0-9a-zA-Z]+) | grep -oEi '(?0-9a-zA-Z)' -- edit: my finger slipped, my regex for window id was bad. check this other site for varying reference: davygoat.com/software/rizzle/How_it_works.html
