An old and well known bug, at least to those of us who work on Mathematica' s
input/output system. :)  Not as trivial to fix as you might think, because
doing InputForm[foo] in a notebook lives in this strange world which is half
command-line terminal and half notebook interface, and so wires can get
crossed easily.
