comment How do I proceed further when my reports of a improper functioning of a gnome component has not met with answers on the respective mailing list
Just a note; as of March 2014; the wiki.gnome.org/NetworkManager/Debugging returns "This page does not exist yet. You can create a new empty page, or use one of the page templates."

comment Multiple GUI windows in one (GUI applications windows multiplexer/wrapper)
Thanks @Gilles - never heard of Sawfish before, will make sure to check it out; but I am unwilling to make a switch at the moment (though surely at a later stage), which is why I thought an application would work great in the meantime.. Cheers!

comment Start window in specific size and location, is there a general tool can do that?
You could also start the application, and then use wmctrl to set window size (see also How to set window size and location of an application on screen via command line? - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange); however, you need a window ID to wmctrl, and I'm not sure what is the best way to get it non-interactively.

comment Multiple GUI windows in one (GUI applications windows multiplexer/wrapper)
Thanks for the comment @goldilocks - problem with tiling window managers like awesome is that they change the entire desktop environment paradigm (vs. what I'm used to); I'd basically like a tiling window manager only inside a scalable (floating) window with a titlebar, which I can move around - while it keeps the positions of the inner applications in sync; added clarification to OP. Thanks again - cheers!

comment Repeating a text-output terminal command, in a scrollable ncurses-like interface?
PSS: Multitail linked from one of the pages on this answer also looks neat, but it needs to be built from source (for me, libncursesw5-dev was also needed); but unfortunately it can scroll "only the last 100 lines", and refresh of the command kills the scroll window (as of v6.0).
