Hmm, I already had
(add-hook 'comint-mode-hook
  (function (lambda ()(setq comint-input-autoexpand nil)))) ;no more "!" 
OK, now I will add
(add-hook 'shell-mode-hook
  (function (lambda ()(setq comint-input-autoexpand nil)))) ;no more "!" 
for double protection. Thanks.

Blame for my troubles can be conveniently shifted onto the Info page for saying

      Shell mode can optionally expand history references in the buffer
   when you send them to the shell.  To request this, set the variable
   `comint-input-autoexpand' to `input'.  You can make <SPC> perform
   history expansion by binding <SPC> to the command `comint-magic-space'.

It said 'optionally' when indeed it is doing it somewhat already by default.

Odd, in the source it says
(defcustom comint-input-autoexpand nil
But when I do
$ LC_ALL=C emacs --no-site-file -q -nw -f shell
and check its value, it is 'history.
Yes, I wish it was history, as in out of here :-)
