I am having a problem with Terminal. It is triggered when I do something that involves the Command key, Cmd-C, Cmd-V etc. It causes my keyboard actions to not be recognized until I click somewhere with the cursor (within the terminal window). And at the same time it treats the cursor as if I am holding down the shift key. (it highlighs everything between my last 2 clicks).

At first I thought it was just going haywire, but I've found this to be very reproducable. The problem usually persists untill I close all the terminal windows and open a new one.

I have a fresh install of Mountain Lion as of 5 days ago (new ssd), that is when the problem began. This ONLY happens in terminal. Any ideas what the deal is or how to fix it?

This, along with several other keyboard and trackpad issues that popped up, were because of Jitouch, an app (perf pane really) that allows for extra multi-touch gestures. I've yet to run into anyone else having this problem from this app, but if I turn the app off, the problems go away.
