That is not true: set -e has no effect on AND and OR lists.
That is, if FANCYTTY is non-empty for whatever reason, then [ -z $FANCYTTY ]
returns false and short-circuits causing the rest of the AND list not to be
executed. The AND list returns false, but because the AND list is not the
last command in the function, the return status of the AND list is ignored
-- even under set -e.
