I had hoped that testing for input during pondering would be as simple as
copying the Inter()/CheckInput() code from ExChess/Crafty, but I seem to be
missing something.

Everything works fine in a non-xboard mode DOS box (simple kbhit()), but my
program (called Searcher by the way) has stopped recognising input from

In xboard mode I set setbuf(stdin, NULL) and signal(SIGINT, SIG_IGN).

Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated, although I should point out that
I know nothing about Pipes and so forth.
