Bash line-feed problem

The bash port generates a line-feed sometimes when it starts up a
program. I know this has been mentioned before, but has anyone 
solved this problem? It makes even very simple progams such
as the following fail:

#include <iostream.h>
main()
{
	char buf[80] = "";

	cout << "Enter a line:";
	cin.getline(buf, 80, '\n');
	cout << "You wrote: " << buf << endl;

	return 0;
}

This works right under csh and command.com, but fails under 
gnu-win32 bash. 

Anyone have a bash binary that doesn't output this unwanted line-feed?

Thanks very much for your help,
Dave
