$TERM = 'xterm'

using ubuntu 11.10.

When I type commands into my terminal, sometimes my input cursor just hangs and no output is visible on my terminal screen. I hit Enter a couple of times, and all of the output gets shown simultaneously to the terminal. I'm using zsh with .oh-my-zsh right now, but I had this same problem when I was using bash, with no real customization done. The thing is, I'm not even sure where to even begin to try to look to fix this problem.
