running winedbg hello.exe shouldn't use curses. the issue here is that
since your app is a CUI app, winedbg creates it in a separate console,
and the two "consoles" (winedbg's fake one - as unix fd:s -, and the
debuggee's one - as a curses wineconsole backend).
try removing as a quick hack the CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE flag in the
CreateProcess call in programs/winedbg/winedbg.c around line 960, that
should cure all your issues
(the two other items are related to this)

I this the work around above should make your happier (even if you won't
get all the line-editing facilities of readline)
IMO, we shouldn't add readline to winedbg... if we really want to add
readline, it should be IMO as a generic feature of all CUI programs
supported in Wine, and not on a per app basis

yeah, I have this on my todo list to write down what's really going on
with the consoles in Wine, the do:s and dont:s..., comparison between
the three modes of consoles in wine (features, invocation...)
