Ah, sorry, I should have been more clear. I meant that it does not work
for me EVEN when on standard console so I doubted it would work better over 
pipes much better.

All the problems I described do happen when using standard console and never
worked no matter which GDB I used (compiled by myself or by some third party).

Not that I know of. There's no ".inputrc" nor "inputrc" on my Windows filesystem.
I believe GDB compiled by myself uses the readline that comes with GDB.
