Never heard of it. However UNIX can be administered from a GUI interface and there are plenty of tools that can 'record' the clicky button and typing dialogue - then play it back at some later time; this is generically called autoscripting , but I would certainly no advocate such a tool for the administration of a UNIX box. I guess this chinese whisper is another result of windows games players(renowned for autoscripting), experimenting with linux - and trying to overlap the technology stacks.

Cheers
