comment Why does the Linux kernel report “out of disk space” when in reality it is out of i-nodes
@Pretzel: I think I remember that the default is one inode for each 4k. I just checked my computer (tune2fs -l /dev/sda1) and I happen to have a ratio of 1 inode for every four blocks and every block is 1k in size. How much this can be considered "default" however, I do not know.

True. I was sort trying to answer the first inline question I hit "Anyone know why this happens?", but not the one in the title.

comment X client forwarded over SSH “cannot open display: localhost:11.0”
I never had to deal with problems like that, but when I ask my machines to xauth list I always get two similar entries of the form <hostname>:<display> and <hostname>/unix:<display> you seem to have only a /unix entry. Maybe your xproxy is not listening on <hostname>:<display>?

comment How to configure fonts on a remote X connection (XDMCP vs. ssh)?
I don't know what XWin does, but this seams like an issue with your environment. What X Server are you connecting to when you use the SSH approach? Is it a different one compared to the XWin use case? I'm guessing when you start the whole Cygwin thing paths are set so that all fonts can be found. If you don't it won't. Fonts are a local thing ... at least in vanilla X.

comment listen a power-button event in Python (no ACPI)
On machines sold in this millenium it is very common for powerbuttons to emit ACPI events. Are you simply missing the acpid or are you actually on a machine without ACPI?

comment Know when the desktop is running, in bash
Why is it such a problem if wmctrl fails? Just let it fail. A fail in this case means it didn't do anything ... which is not bad in this case.

comment Xorg.conf to only use part of screen
@Gilles: I have had trouble making calls concurring with other SE users as far as links to answers, duplicates and/or partial answers are concerned. I concluded I will restrict myself to provising information and leave formal matters for others. Feel free to do the right thing du jour with this information.
