The thing that's odd is the shell puts the input in a half-baked mode: No echo, no CR translation, no EOF, but still record oriented.  That's an unusual mode, code that requires that should set it itself.

I can see the mode being set to raw when the shell is created but I do 
not see any further changes in the command processing loop. Setting the 
mode to raw in the shell's command line processor is ok because it need 
this mode. My understanding of the issue is what the mode should be for 
the call is the user's command handler.
