Upps, I should have appended from the conversation of feb.2016:

Maybe the exposition of my problem in 2016 has been somehow obfuscating -
of all my own programming I expect that the source of the problem
need not be in deep OS-specifica, but only in the communication-
loop of the program to append an (additional) prompt to his messages
or not.

Two kind suggestions of Karim could I not follow:

I couldn't find that minigp.c in all my sources of GP-versions (downloaded
by tarball-archives)

I'm completely unfamiliar with GitHub and I couldn't manage to find
an access/a route to this. Perhaps such a 30-liner, translated to Delphi,
would really solve my problem in that other way - likely even a cleaner

P.S.: In the beginning of 2016 my health began to degrade, so I couldn't take
the time to engage in the conversation then. So please also pardon that
uncommunicative behave of mine...
