I've tried getch() and scanf() to no avail, with or without clearing
keyboard buffer in advance :( I don't understand that at all. Also
I've tried system("") but that didn't work neither. (Maybe because
system() isn't reentrant?..). printf() or fprintf does work in that
code path, however keyboard does not. I kinda suspect silly
programming error from my side, but I've double-checked it...

I guess I'll find out how fixincludes works and try narrowing testcase
