That's strange.  Do you have some curses library installed, and if so,
does it get linked into GDB?

The .inputrc file doesn't come with Readline, it is a user init file
that you yourself can create to customize how input through readline

I compile GDB myself as well, also with its bundled readline, I use
GDB in the Windows console all the time, and I have no problems like
the ones you describe.  Very strange.
