If the program is expecting input it normally prompts the user with output e.g

  Enter number of iterations:

If the program has no input, the user doesn't need to do anything new and the
change just helps to prevent gdb-ui getting confused.

It depends on what he typed and whether he pressed RET or C-M-RET by mistake.
Currently if a user enters input while the program is still running, gdb-ui
tries to recover with gdb-resync.

C-return and C-M-return don't seem to be available on a terminal anyway.
Could I just use M-return?
