I have no idea what particular terminal you are using, but I do know
some terminals have a "Quake console" mode, where they drop down from
the top of the screen. Maybe you have activated such an option by
mistake?

If all else fails, I would grep through the process list and look for a
PID for that terminal. Kill that rather than bash, as bash might be
running for other reasons (parsing scripts, or remote logins).
