Yes, exit does not terminate an interactive shell.  This is the
expected behavior.  The user exits an interactive shell by typing
an EOT (^D)...

This is how the original did it .. and the 7th Edition Bourne shell
did it this way too...

Doing an `exit' only causes the shell to cease execution of a file.
