    You can use "find" or "locate" to search for the file. e.g.
    Code:
    find / -name file.txt
    Code:
    locate file.txt

    you may have to run "updatedb" (as root) before "locate myfile.txt" (as regular user)

    You need to start a new thread as that is a completely different subject (maybe ask a mod to split this thread?)

    Anywho... Not sure what issues you're talking about, can you point to a bug somewhere?
