Have you tried the conin program? You can get it from the mintty
repository here: https://code.google.com/p/mintty/source/browse/utils/

It lets you run a child process with stdin coming from a real Windows
console, through which conin proxies your input. IME, it makes most
programs believe they're being run interactively.
