Which programs give you this trouble? The problem is often related
to either poor OpSys implementation of the curses library or GRASS programs
that use curses (or directly to the tty handler) don't reset properly
upon exit. Notable programs are, g.region. We have beat our
heads on and off for years with these tty interfaces and some of these
efforts are included in the 4.1beta test (and most are on the moon).
Look for and libes/vask on moon.
