Can anyone explain this ?
The name "file:" reminds me of how file managers sometimes refer to
local files in their address/location bar. Some application might
misunderstand expressions such as "file:///home/frank/Desktop" and
therefore create spurious directories and files in your home directory.
You could try to catch processes that access these directories/files
with lsof or fuser, maybe in combination with inotify-wait (package
and if there was nothing after the file, the filename might be hidden
characters or A SPACE.. you might try :
$ls -la ?
like I did here. What I did was create a file called 1 . The wild card "?"
would find it,and any filename that was 1 character, including a space
# ls -la ?
ls: cannot access ?: No such file or directory
paulandcilla:/etc/udev/rules.d# ls -la ?
