Any successfully executed command will clear the exit status, but yep,
I see what you mean. This feature was intended for invoking programs
such as ssh or telnet, or perhaps a script, where you'd want to see
the output if there's an error. Admittedly though, it's little use
with the standard case of a shell session.

So how about disabling this by default, and having a command line
option for activating it might be necessary? Suggestions for the name
of such an option welcome. ("--keep-open-on-error" is the best I could
come up with so far, but that's a bit on the unsnappy side.)
