That's what I thought too :-/

The behavior is the same - it works during the configuration step, but
not afterward.

I wonder what's different between the input handling of the remote
configuration step, and the input handling of the running program, and
what I could've done to make them behave differently.

Any suggestions on where to go from here?

That makes sense.  Thanks.
