[racket] Fwd: Input Issues

Hi All.

I'm having an issue with (read-line).  Below is some output from running the
attached rkt file on my system(Ubuntu 10.10, Racket 5.0.2).  In the first
instance the script runs, and as I expect I can enter a string such as
"Hello". When I use the repl it does not work like I expect it to, and I
don't get a chance to enter a string.  Any ideas?  I thought about
flushing/discarding data from the input port before calling (read-line), but
I only found a function for flushing an output port.


bash$ racket -l scheme -t "read-test.rkt" -e "(read-input)"
Enter a string: Hello
bash$ racket
Welcome to Racket v5.0.2.
> (require "read-test.rkt")
> (read-input)
Enter a string: ""
