When I click on the Terminal icon, Terminal opens for about a second and shots down again. I tried reinstalling and it keeps behaving exactly as I described above. Any ideas?

You probably have iPhone 4 and iOS4... I also had this problem. Here is the solution: remove it, then install the beta package from xSellize (X Apps) under the name of \"MobileTerminal iOS4\" (search it on Cydia).
