Sun SU and Standard Output

Bit of a strange one.

Have a script called rapidclone_test.sh which calls Oracle rapidclone using su -c as an oracle osuser. However, if I control+c out to the calling shell anything entered is not displayed on the terminal. Any command executes successfully though.

Why is the standard input not being directed to the screen?

Running the script ->
Code:
orakrull@vq97eda> ./rapidclone_test.sh

rapidclone_test.sh looks like this ->
