in thread redirecting stdin on windows

Funny, it works for the following (on WinXP):
print "username: "; chomp ($uname = <STDIN>); print "\npassword: "; chomp ($password = <STDIN>); print "\nYou entered username $uname and password $password\n";
someusername somepassword
And I'm calling it like this:
perl < answer.txt
...which produces this:
C:\test\scratch>perl < answer.txt username: password: You entered username someusername and password somepassword
...which is the expected output.
