There's an option, in the project options, to run the app in an
external terminal. This is what you should use if you want input.

It's not a bug, it's the absence of a feature. That pad is an "Output"
pad, not a terminal emulator. Building a terminal emulator inside MD
would be overkill (though contributions are welcome).
