comment less command and syntax highlighting
Hmm, in my case it's a symlink to /usr/bin/ex, which, curiously, is owned by the vi package.

comment less command and syntax highlighting
Hmm, my view command doesn't seem to support syntax highlighting. I've tried :syntax enable and :syntax on, but I always get syntax: Not an editor command. My vim supports highlighting, though.

comment Where is the GUID Partition Table stored on a device?
@m-ric no, but there's no way it could have been. The partitions of the OS X installer exactly matched those of the Fedora installer, which is why I got confused, and thought the partitions were coming back somehow. Now that I understood where they were coming from, I feel kinda stupid for thinking "they were coming back" in the first place :).

comment No way to record a live stream to WebM using ffmpeg?
Not really, since I wouldn't really know what to use. I'll try to come up with something, though.

So, if I don't add bs=512, it still starts form sector 0, right? And it goes to the end of the disk, right? So, again, what difference does it make?

bs=512 means to write chunks up to 512 bytes at a time, according to the man page, and has nothing to do with where the writing actually starts. Or am I missing something?

I already did that.. seriously, please read the (entire) question.

I don't think the cache file could have been the problem: the extra partitions were shown after unplugging and plugging the USB stick. Also, after reconnecting the stick, I used fdisk on it and it displayed the extra partitions as well.

Actually, I want to completely wipe the GPT and use instead a classic MBR-based MSDOS one.

@StarNamer what do you mean by check the state? Just to be safe I ran sync and made sure the little blue light on the stick wasn't flashing (I waited ~20 seconds).

Have you even read the question? I want to get rid of my partition table.

comment Which distro should I switch to?
@xenoterracide how long have you been using it? It took me probably a couple of months to get it to completely crash (something related to Xorg/ATI drivers/Gnome) and make me want to go back to Ubuntu. It was not unrepairable (I would have had to downgrade some packages), but I felt I wanted something more stable.

@Tshepang is Debian testing more stable than Archlinux? That testing part sounds worrying. But thanks for the answer, I did not know Debian testing was rolling release. I will try it.
