Thanks. I tried all 4 of these, but they didn't work for me. You write "may work", and "as a last resort try"... Did any of these actually work for you? Which ones?

comment How does Ubuntu keep track of the “System restart required” flag in motd?
Note: for debian systems, /var/run/reboot-required does not get created unless the update-notifier-common package is installed.

comment How do I get ubuntu to reconfigure /etc/network/interfaces for me?
I'm +1-ing this question because we need non-linux people to be able to configure networks for our appliance. Something e.g. curses based that makes it easy is what I'm looking for...

comment sudo su - username while keeping ssh key forwarding
This only works, if user2 above is root! Otherwise, user2 will have SSH_AUTH_SOCK set up correctly, but the user2 won't be able to access e.g. /tmp/ssh-GjglIJ9337/. root does have that access. So this may solve part of the problem, but not the OPs: "and the socket is only readable by my original user"

I just tried these, and my terminal is still broken. I note that 'echo "^v^o"' Is never seen in the terminal. I pressed e+c+h+o+<space>+CTRL-V+CTRL-O+<ENTER>, right? That printed echo ^O in my terminal.

Thanks, yeah I went that way too, and created "Beginnings of ANSI Escape displayer": pastebin.com/VXUtcj8W, but Server Fault wouldn't let me post more than one link :-(
