 it's not a bug, but a strange behavior
 the flag interactive_comments is accessible from both shopt and shopt -o

 shopt | grep interactive_comments
 shopt -o | grep interactive_comments

in your documentation (bashref), shopt -o (set -o) does not have this flag...

There is an inconsistency.  `set -o'/`shopt -o' manage
`interactive-comments', but `shopt' also controls an identical option
named `interactive_comments'.  That one has to be my bad.
