comment bash ignores what I type while “apt-get” is running
@MartyFried: looks like there is something weird about my setup then. I will try to find out what's happening. Thanks!

@izx: I did not add -y, but it was a command that did not ask for input from its stdin. For example, I just tried sudo apt-get install pigz, which did not ask for any confirmation, but it still behaved the way I describe in my question. For completeness, I tried sudo apt-get -y install pigz with the same results.

@MartyFried, just to be sure: once apt-get finishes, I can type commands and everything works normally. I can't type commands while apt-get is running though. I am using Ubuntu 12.04. I guess I should report this as a bug.
