comment starting android avd fails, saying it can't find emulator, but it exists
This was the issue that led me to the solution. I never looked at the installation instructions for the SDK. I had installed it on Windows (32-bit) before, and didn't realize it required an extra step for 64-bit Ubuntu. It required installing the ia32-libs package.

Added "file" output to show 64 vs. 32 disparity.

comment Timezone appears to be set correctly, but time is 7 hours off
For now, I manually set the time on the time/date settings dialog, then changed it back to automatic. We'll see what happens over time. I suppose there should be ntp logs that tell me whether it's successfully checking for updates. I guess I'll have to check those.

comment Tab Completion Causes Dollar Signs to be Escaped
Concerning the "$HOME" example, it's because my actual test case wasn't using "$HOME", but a different var. I guess I'll report a bug for this, then.
