comment A ticket or a receipt?
In Europe you often need some printed thing to get through security. I don't think they're very regarding what's written on it as long as it has the right name and dates but they might not accept just looking at a screen and they definitely want something.

What exactly does the visa say, especially about “Durationofstay”?

comment Can I travel to France for the second time with my visa type D?
@Doc Thanks for the correction about condition 4, well spotted. Duration of stay depends on the country and visa type, sometimes it's per visit, sometimes it's total, sometimes it's from first entry. I thought Schengen was total (usually 90 days, reset after 6 months). I don't have an official reference however.

comment Getting a passport stamp while walking across a EU border
Basel would have been a better place, actually — I think you could get a stamp by walking into the German station (Basel Bad). But now Switzerland is out: since it joined Schengen, there are no more border checks. Gibraltar should be an option.
