This happens with many programs that use termios to modify terminal
behavior (src/tty.c in JtR).  Basically, they set up the terminal to
handle keystrokes in a specific fashion, but when you forcibly kill
the application before it has the opportunity to clean up (ctrl-C
twice), the terminal hasn't been returned to its original
configuration.  Solution: be patient or get used to using ctrl-j.

The reason this does not happen when you're piping output is because
the output is not your tty, hence the termio doesn't affect it.
