@terdon if you can update your answer to fit my question I'll re-accept your answer. Right now the answer doesn't fit on account of my omission of an important detail. (Sorry).

comment Why is NetworkManager attempting to control an interface script that doesn't exist?
Quick followup. Once I remove NM, will the ONBOOT option still be recognized when the system boots?

comment Search mp3 collection for songs with a certain song length
This works nicely. I modified your script to include the length of each song as it loops through the directories.

comment Unexpectedly lost speaker output. Headphone output works fine
It looks like it is a hardware issue. Same problem with a Ubuntu live cd. I am not sure resetting the bounty will work on an existing question. Sorry for dragging my feet here.

comment exec cp failes from script, yet works when issued directly
To reiterate, the same command works if I enter it directly from a prompt.

Also it is writing to a windows machine which technically has no permissions. I assign local permissions rwx------ and ownership to root:root. So root should have permissions to write/copy either way.
