Have you tried opening your preferences, and opening in a different shell? Also... Go to Apple's support forums at their site, and do a search on the subject there first, before you post. This has probably already happened to someone.
It sounds like you edited your.. well I'm not going to get into it.

I had a similar problem before, too. I tried to remote telnet into the Mac to check the processes and kill the offending PID with no luck. In the end, I had to reinstall OS X. I believe that some 3rd party software corrupted something...

i do a search in apple discussion board, and there is a lot of people who have this problem.
Apparently it's still related to the Apple Installer !
The two programs I installed before having this behavior are : JellyfiSSH & MPlayerOSXgui...
Don't know which one scrambled my terminal and i don't want to take my time to test.
