This is the third time this problem (no clean way to get rid of stdio
redirect) has been brought up in about a week. At present, recompiling
the SDL library or adding WinMain() your program are the only
workarounds. IMO, both are awful solutions; it's really just waiting
for someone to step up and write a patch to SDL.
