The *input/output of a.out* is empty.
It seems that I was wrong about read_key_sequence(). It doesn't "return early". Here is a stack trace during the timeout:

read_char() returns 158534621.
Sorry, I can't redistribute the executable. If the problem can't be solved by otherwise, I'll try to generate another executable that has this problem. In any case, here is the output when running gdb from the command line on the executable.

If you look at the *input/output of a.out* buffer, does it contain any

Also, when you say that read_key_sequence keeps returning, what is its
return value? Also, when read_key_sequence returns early, what is the
value returned by read_char at keyboard.c:9341?
Also, is it possible for you to provide a copy of the problematic
program, or is it not allowed?
