comment Ruby commands are turning off tty echo
stty sane, stty echo and (as noted in the question) reset do all fix the problem. I'm trying to figure out how to prevent the problem, which seems to be at least somewhat specific to my system, else I'd see bug reports about this somewhere. The ruby scripts are builders, gem updates -- nothing with a visual component.

@terdon I just checked, and it happens in iTerm2 as well. It's definitely not Terminal.app-specific. Edited the title and tags accordingly.

comment Ruby commands are turning off tty echo
I didn't type "And now you don't". I typed echo And now you don''t, which was never shown onscreen. You're seeing the output of the echo command. There's no continuation.

True. Different audiences, but appropriate for either site, IMHO. If I get an answer in once place, I'll close the other question with a link to the solved one. I'll resist the urge to leave a "same comment on superuser..." response to your comment over there. :-)
