wineconsole (newbie)

I'm trying to run a very simple program under wineconsole, but can't get it to work.
The file is:
#include <stdio.h>
int main (int argc, char * argv[])
    int a;
    printf("Enter a char:");
    a = getchar();
It compiles and runs fine under Linux (prints the message and waits for characters to be typed, ends when Return is pressed).
It also compiles using mingw32 cross-compiler and runs fine if put on a Windows box, but won't run under Wine.
Specifically, the behaviour I observe is:
1) Console window opens
2) Console window closes before I can see any text printed (i.e. very fast)
3) Wine exits with successful completion indicator.
I have had no luck getting winedbg to work at all.
I'm using version 0.0.20020411-1 on Debian.
Any help appreciated.
Incidentally, the background to this is that I'm trying to get a slightly more complicated program working, also a console app, and not having any joy.
