start with
        static bool get_input_pending (int);

The code's waiting for a while to ensure that it gets all of the bytes in
a cursor-key/function-key/mouse-event sequence.

You could cut the discussion short by making the check that I suggested:
logging the decoded character/special-key values to look for instances
where the decoding returns individual bytes.
