When I start an adb shell (or use the android terminal emulator) and run commands as root I am not returned to a command prompt after the output is listed. So, for example, if I run the 'date' command the output is listed and I can't do anything after that except for Ctrl-C to kill the shell. If I run the same command but not as root there is no problem and after the output is listed I am returned to command prompt. (HTC 2, AN. 2.3.4) Any ideas as to what's going on? BTW, this happens with other commands as well ls, etc.
