The problem here is that "info" switches to another Terminal "screen", and the old one is not recovered when "info" crashes - this does not happen with every crashing app.

This could be considered a bash bug, then. Or rather a missing feature. The same happens in Linux with bash 3.x, if you e.g. run vim and "kill -9" it. Regarding apps that restore the terminal on crash, I suppose they have signal handlers for the deadly signals.
