comment A command to print only last 3 characters of a string
This also depends on locale settings to guarantee that it works correctly, since a set of bytes may reflect different characters in different charsets. It "works" for LC_ALL=C because that's a very "dumb" setting, but it may break when you try to pass an UTF-8 string to SHIFT-5, or a SHIFT-5 string to KOI8, etc.

Note that POSIX explicitly specifies that tail should deal with bytes, and not characters. I once made a patch to add a new option to also select characters, but I believe that never got merged :-/

comment csh: Terminal inherits environment variables from an unknown location
Perhaps from /etc/profile.d/*.csh? These files are usually sourced by /etc/csh.cshrc. And did you check ~/.tcshrc? Most csh shells these days are really tcsh.

comment Inconsistency of stderr redirection between tcsh and other shells
@StéphaneChazelas Yeah, that usually works for (very) simple commands, but it quickly becomes complex due to quoting issues, and people often make mistakes here.
