Why can't I use the terminal any more with Lion?

At work, there is a MacPro that I routinely use remotely via SSH, but have only sporadic physical access to. Someone else upgraded it to Lion (from Snow Leopard), and since then, I am unable to use the terminal locally or to log into it via SSH - in either case, the process immediately terminates / disconnects. Other user accounts on the same machine are not affected. What could be going on?

Help me consolidate thousands of pictures

I have a bunch of directories of pictures across multiple disks. Many images are duplicated. Additionally, I had to use some disk recovery software to rescue other images and the filenames changed. At the moment, I can't guarantee that all of the filenames are unique. I'd like to weed out the duplicates and then ultimately consolidate everything into iPhoto. I'm talking close to 20,000 pictures. [more inside]

Datascrubing

datascrubbing: I'm using rm -R */*.gif (for example) to get rid of unnecessary files in a directory. There is stuff that's nested about five directories deep that I can't get to using the above command. I'm using the Bash terminal in OS X. specifically, there is a redundant file called "popup" nested in there that I want to get rid of, among others.

Second related problem: is there a way to recursively delete (full) directories, say ones that end in .blob using wildcards? And would I use rmdir or rm -R to do this?

I'm working on a copy of the original, so its ok to experiment a little
