cmd.Cmd() takes three parameters, the second of which is a file to 
use instead of standard input by resetting self.stdin. The substitute 
input is never used.

The problem is that 'use_rawinput' is set to 1 and not changed. This 
means that raw_input() is always used and self.stdin.readline() is 
never used.
