Hmm, I never knew about that. 
So, I finally got tcpdump working, and after the terminal locks
up, hitting return produces no affect on the command line, but the ssh
connection is still open because I can see data go by on my tcpdump
window. And, I DO get the menu of escape sequences back after typing 
"<RETURN>~?", but I was not successful in getting anything to work. 
In  fact, the tcpdump messages pretty much stopped after a few 
key strokes.
