Terminal Corruption

Any idea why / how to prevent the text on Virtual Consoles going nuts and being
replaced with lots of funny garbage characters?

This happens to me occasionally if I accidentally cat an executable file. But
today it happened when I mounted an msdos floppy, and tried to do 'ls'. When
this happens the VC it happens on is useless and the characters are only normal
again when I reboot. Even when I type exit (which appears all corrputed of
course), the little pengiun logo on the login screen is all corrupted. :(.

Any ideas? I really hate having to reboot my computer, it reminds me of
