If your application crashes (not specifically the ncurses library), then
ncurses will not be able to restore the terminal settings, giving that
type of behavior.

To get your input back, you can type

        stty sane

and follow that with a control/J (newline).  Long ago I used to keep a shell 
for that, to save typing :-)
