I know that horizontal-scroll-mode is an readline option, but your reply
doesn't address the question (and the pages you refer to are in which book?),
which is why a source'd script gets any other options. In fact, if you

  set foo bar

, this will result in $1 being 'foo' and $2 being 'bar' when doing a
source somefile. So readline is irrelevant, and my question remains. 

If you have a procedure with 10 parameters, you probably missed some. (Kraulis)
