This is most likely related to whether the input goes via terminal or
the video window.
I suspect if you play video and switch to the terminal you get the
same behaviour as audio-only.
Also I'd suggest trying something other than CTRL+D, since that is
the "end of input" keycode which might be problematic.
Generally these kind of things are likely related to termcap files
and terminal input handling in general.
