Part of the problem is the IDE console and cygwin too I believe 
both *look* like a pipe to the program instead of like an 
interactive terminal, thus why it gets block instead of line 

Someone once told me of a trick to detect cygwin specifically but 
I can't access it right now and I'm not sure it would work 
reliably anyway....

Just yeah set your expectations low because if it was easy to 
tell programmatically the libc would already do it right.
