comment Setting environment variables at runtime in KDE4
No it is not possible to update a running programs environment. It is possible to start a new shell with the new environment. @Gilles I suspect if you remove the KDE aspect this is a duplicate... do you know?

comment What is the different bash per terminal session for Konsole?
@Jim I would say that, no bash does not run separately from the terminal, the terminal spawns a new bash process. If you want to share a bash process between tabs, you'd need something like tmux or other terminal multiplexer.

comment Efficiently delete large directory containing thousands of files
using + instead of \; would make this faster as it passes more arguments to rm at once, less forking

comment Efficiently delete large directory containing thousands of files
if you're going to use exec you almost certainly want not use -ls and do find . -type f -exec rm '{}' + + is faster because it will give as many arguments to rm as it can handle at once.
