Does this happen if you exits program normally (not killing it by Ctrl-C)?

It is likely that if you kill a program, it has no chance to free some terminal resources correctly or restore its previous state.

We've just updated testdisk and checked it - the scrolls really became disabled, but only if you press 'Ctrl-C'. If you quit normally, everything is ok.

Hitting 'Ctrl-C' is not a normal way to quit the program, we are not going to fix program behavior in case when this event occurs.
