I recently installed a copy of Mac OS X86 10.4.8...everything was fine at first....

But then i right clicked on the terminal icon in the dock and selected 'New Command' just to see what it does...

I selected a simple command like 'uname -a' and checked 'Run command inside a shell'. Well, it executed as was expected.

But now whenever i start terminal, the same command gets executed again and i'm not able to type anything in the terminal window....there's no prompt.

Here's the terminal output....
