comment “No such file or directory” when trying to remove a file, but the file exists?
You could use Bash's "file name completion" to generate the correct file name starts with q. If that fails, it means the first letter isn't q but you can then use rm -i *timeout.png to remove it, or minor variations on the theme. All this assumes this is a one-off problem and not a systemic one.

revised Why is it bad to login as root?
Diners eat dinner - optionally with pitch forks but usually with forks (or spoons). Extra changes to meet the minima.

comment What does “TTY” stand for?
Matrix? No; not matrix. Like a typewriter, usually a spinning ball head, AFAICR, but definitely not a matrix.

comment Why is it bad to login as root?
@jippie: I mean 'blame' in the same way that a VCS tracks who did what so that the correct person is attributed with the responsibility for the change, for good or bad, and one of the names for the command that does that tracking is 'blame'. It gives you a person to speak to to find out why something happened. It is not always 'fault' (though depressingly often, the reason for needing to know is because something isn't quite working as expected and there's a need to know why not). So, it is about accountability and trackability rather than necessarily faulting the person for what they did.
