I can't reproduce it:

jenna.ins.cwru.edu(1)$ ../bash-2.05b/bash --version
GNU bash, version 2.05b.0(1)-release (i686-pc-linux-gnu)
Copyright (C) 2002 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
jenna.ins.cwru.edu(1)$ ../bash-2.05b/bash --norc ./x4 bar or not
>>>bar<<<
>>>or<<<
>>>not<<<
jenna.ins.cwru.edu(1)$ cat ./x4
for i
do

done
