comment Wrong character rendering in internet related applications
The character is correct, so it's a font problem, and the fact that you only saw it on some web pages is because the web page or the browser requests non-default fonts. fc-cache -f might help, but probably not.

comment Why do multiple instances of Mate-terminal have the same PID?
When you run mate-terminal, it contacts the existing process, no matter where you ran it from: the second mate-terminal process is not the one that displays the window, it just sends commands to the existing one and waits for the first one to tell it that the window was closed. If you run xeyes twice, you get two different processes. You can see it in the window IDs: they encode the client connection to the X server, and there's usually one per process. All the Mate Terminal windows in your wmctrl output come from connection 0x03c. The xeyes windows come from connections 0x034 and 0x046.

comment Does an init script always return a proper exit code when running status?
Under what distribution? This is not the case in Debian, but it might be the case in your distribution.

comment How to make SysRq working on laptop?
@AlKlimov You need to press the SysRq key. If your keyboard doesn't have a SysRq key, that's obviously a problem. See my edited answer.

comment How reliable/portable are Nix built-ins/commands (echo, ps, sort, uniq) from Debian to other distros
Are you talking about Nix or about Unix? If you're talking about Unix, please write “Unix”.

comment How reliable/portable are Nix built-ins/commands (echo, ps, sort, uniq) from Debian to other distros
GNU tools don't include ps. There's no alternative to the OS's native ps command — it parses some data structures or files that vary a lot between Unix variants.

@1.61803 The version of bash is irrelevant, it is not involved here. What's relevant is that you're on OSX.

@1.61803 On OSX, you need to set the environment variable CLICOLOR=FORCE. See the man page.

In EWW, what does C-u C-x = say about that character? Do you observe the problem with any HTTPS site? With local files? If you copy-paste into some other application, what character do you get?
