comment Fast elimination of duplicate lines across multiple files
Have you considered sorting your file contents, and then running uniq? I've no idea if that would be faster or not, but an idea nonetheless.

comment Concatenate lines by first column by awk or sed
@tiny - I was assuming the ordering needed to be preserved. Is this not the case (this answer produces ordering corresponding to the hashing mechanism, not your original order)?

comment How do I get Synaptic's detailed description pane back?
I understand your point, but this doesn't help me. You only get single-line summaries with your command. Synaptic actually shows those too, as a column on the far right, although you can't see them in my screenshot. What I am interested in is easily scanning the paragraph of text below the summary line.

comment How to setup password-less ssh with RSA keys
Seems there's not much you haven't tried. My only suggestion: Here is a similar issue, where the fix was to specify protocol version 1 before generating the keys: lists.debian.org/debian-user/2003/02/msg01972.html

comment Stop user being able to access live CD environment or recovery mode?
If network access is the core issue, you could consider just removing the network card. You can always plug in a usb network interface to do updates etc.
