10.4: Recover from a dragging issue in Disk Utility
Authored by: ghay on Sep 13, '07 08:09:59AM

Of course, this is just using the terminal to open the application, so you can substitute the two lines with just one :

open /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.app/Contents/MacOS/Disk\ Utility.app

Note : My disk is called "Macintosh HD" if you need to add a space you must put a slash before it (\ ).

The open command does various things, but in this case will launch the application specified.

10.4: Recover from a dragging issue in Disk Utility

You can open Disk Utility with an even shorter command, actually.
open /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.app
If you don't mind opening the copy from drive you're booted from (so not applicable in this case), this syntax is even shorter.
open -b com.apple.diskutility
