No, it doesn't when errexit is set unless I'm missing something:

    ~$ bash
    2: ~$ set -e
    2: ~$ false

The "2" indicates the SHLVL, and as shown, you don't get dropped at a
prompt when errexit is set during an interactive session. I want a
feature that works like errexit but returns the user to a functioning
prompt per my original message:
