Have you tried using xterm? from within XQuartz ?
This is kind of at the sideline, but my main reason for using XQuartz is for having a terminal window
that is always working -though a little bit less sophisticated, but with much better response times.
There is an investment in time, setting it all up and configuring, but it is very rewarding.

I imagine you'd've gotten the same result (properly functioning terminal) by closing the nonfunctional terminal window and making a new one (Shell menu: New Window). I use the terminal a lot, making dozens of terminal windows over the course of a day, and several times a day I get a nonfunctional terminal window as you describe, particularly if I've just closed another terminal window a second ago. I don't remember this happening before upgrading from Tiger to Snow Leopard. I don't know what causes it but it doesn't overly concern me; I just make another window and move on. I doubt it has anything to do with MacPorts.

I used it last night, and this happened. If it happens to you several times a day and you use MacPorts a lot, maybe it is related.
