comment Why does mount happen over an existing directory?
Yes, as I said: no important use cases (of read-only filesystems with mounted read-write filesystems). So it seems like a case of premature optimization in early Unix.

I don't see any important use cases of read-only filesystems with mounted read-write filesystems, especially not in the early Unix. @PeterCordes

comment sftp gives an error: “Received message too long” and what is the reason?
Wrong .bashrc needs to be silent, .bash_profile can echo with no problems.

comment Tomcat won't use setenv.sh
Nah, CATALINA_OPTS works better, without bogus errors on shutdown. And my tomcat7 picks up bin/setenv.sh without a problem.

comment Tracking what commands were executed after sudo to another user
Re "HISTTIMEFORMAT seems to be buggy" - the format is for presentation, not for storage. It is used when you issue for example history 10. For storage, HISTTIMEFORMAT only says whether to store timestamps (if set to anything) or not to store at all (if unset). The entries are only stored as %s.
