Bash Version: 4.2
Patch Level: 24
Release Status: release

While normally sourced files have identical options set like the
invoking environment this is not true if the sourcing is done from
within a function foo that was called with something like:

foo && true

The following example demonstrates this:

$ cat bug
set -e

    echo A: $-
    . source
    echo D: $-

echo Broken:
int && true

echo OK:
$ cat source
echo B: $-
echo C: $-
$ bash bug
A: ehB
B: hB
C: hB
D: ehB
A: ehB
B: ehB

This error showed up in bash 4.0 first and was not present in 3.2 or older.

As you can see in the invocation "int && true" the flag is still set
inside the function but magically disappears once the file is sourced,
while in the second incocation "int" everything behaves as expected.
Apparently something gets broken when the exit on error is temporarily
disabled for the chained command "int && true" because while it gets
properly restored within the function itself it disappears again when
sourcing the other file.

This problem was also reported already as
https://savannah.gnu.org/support/index.php?108191 already but Werner
Fink suggested to report via bashbug.

Invoke the scripts as described in the details section.
