If you mean that a lot of garbage was printed into the terminal, try
typing blindly 'reset' (yeah, 'reset'; it will only reset the current
terminal, not reboot your computer..), and the terminal should return
to normal.

Normally on program exit strace will exit too though, so the call
trace should have been saved; btw you can use 'strace -o <outfile>
<program> <args>' to directly output a trace to a trace file.
