You haven't even touched SDL at that point in that source code.

If I had to guess, something (possibly a linker option embedded in the SDL
binding) is causing your program to be built as a Windows GUI (as opposed
to Windows Console) so it has no stdin.  I couldn't tell you much more than
that, though; the ways of Windows development are foreign to me.
