Thank you! And by viewing "true.c" I can begin to answer the rest of my question. It looks like a lot of code may be devoted to supporting --version and --help?

comment How do I change my username?
Was a simple fix -- Just had to use the User Accounts editor in unity, followed by restart.

comment How do I change my username?
I'm running 12.04 LTS on a VirtualBox guest machine. This answer (using the "temporary" account) worked for me. However, the GUI still shows the username as the old username, even after system restart. The terminal prompt and directory structure show the new username. Any idea how to update the username displayed on the GUI?
