These settings work to keep recent files out of the list, yet directories still seem to be recorded there.

GTK programs do issue an error to stderr if this file is chmod to root, remarkably the file gets recreated as the user as owner. How mysterious! This solution does not seem to work.

Specify a larger dd block size to improve speed, dependant on your disk cache, but bs=4M is a good value. You can print dd status by sending it the SIGUSR1 signal, see prefetch.net/blog/index.php/2006/06/11/printing-dd-status
