Neither tail nor grep muck with tty settings (that I know of), so if the tty is ending up with echo disabled, it's got to be the shell leaving it that way. Perhaps there's some kind of race condition in the shell's signal processing? So again, we'll need to know which shell this is happening with and a way to reliably repro the issue to have any hope of fixing it.

Happens to me always if I grep a directory with a large binary files, 
grep is currently checking one of those huge files and I try to stop it 
by doing Ctrl+C.
