comment How can I check what signals a process is listening to?
No, you can block a signal without being ready to catch it. If you don't catch a signal, a default action will happen depending on the signal (usually process termination). If you want more detail you ought to open a question.

comment sorting ps output by CPU time on linux
This works on Debian 7.8 (wheezy); procps-ng version 3.3.3. Can you share more about the system you're running? What is the output of ps --version?

comment Modifying the EXT2 Filesystem
If all you're doing is keeping an extra piece of metadata, ext2 supports "extended attributes": setfattr -n user.mydata -v 'some value' my_file.txt. You might need to yum install attr first. See also: archive09.linux.com/feature/114027 and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_file_attributes#Linux

comment How can I alert on completion of a long task over ssh?
If you want to use the netcat/socat method, make sure you bind to localhost, and make sure you would trust any other users of the remote host with your D-Bus session. Forwarding the socket this way breaks D-Bus security checking. See unix.stackexchange.com/a/200104/3629 . Alternately, you could use a custom D-Bus config file that explicitly disables EXTERNAL authentication.

Why forward D-Bus? Isn't Gnome-keyring running on the same computer as rdesktop, or did I miss something?
