That's because the shell grabs input from the same terminal.  It should
work if you type something like "sleep 10000" in it first.

If your ncurses app is a bit like Emacs and you're not debugging startup, you
can run it in a terminal, find it's process no (1234, say) and attach to it
in gdb with "attach 1234".
