comment File has bytes - appears to be empty
Could perhaps be a partially transferred/downloaded file? I know that at least several BitTorrent-clients creates files of the size it need for the file it's downloading, and then fill it with NUL - and if the download fails, NUL will be all the file contain. Don't think it's much you can do; you may have reserved space for the file, but you obviously haven't actually downloaded/transferred it.

comment Is it possible to remove the delay on wrong password?
It's supposed to be a delay, it's a security feature. In case someone tried a dictionary-attack (just trying words from a dictionary) or similar; that imposed delay between tries, would make such an attack very time-consuming... which is the point of the delay. You could probably remove the delay by "fixing" the source-code of pam, passwd or sudo; but why make your system less secure?

comment How to change the default TTY after boot?
On Virtual Terminal #4... When in runlevel 2, 3, 4 or 5... If the program running here (/bin/login) terminates, restart it (every time it terminates)... Run the program /bin/login on Virtual Terminal #4, stdin is VT #4, stdout is VT #4, stderr is hooked to stdout. (not sure about -f username... try man login)
