In fact, the code I've altered can't have an effect on this:  as it says
in the essay I wrote before, I'm modifying code above the "top-level"
loop in loop(), that's called mainly to handle "do you really want to
exit" for interactive shells.  The initialisation code is not handled
from here; run_init_scripts() has finised from this point.  I think we'd
need code within loop() itself, which handles the lines read from
startup files.  In this code the test

	if (((!interact || sourcelevel) && errflag) || retflag)

ensures we *do* break out of the loop if we're sourcing a file (whether
or not at initialisation).

Hmm... we're not getting confused between keeping going in a particular
startup file and allowing the shell to execute another file, are we?
