Interestingly, the interact command was added at changeset:

$ hg log -v --pager cat -r $(hg blame Lib/ | grep do_interact | awk -F : '{print $1}')

Add the "interact" pdb command from pdb++.

And the included documentation, added at that time, states (emphasis added by me):
Start an interative interpreter (using the code module) whose global namespace contains all the ***(global and local)*** names found in the current scope.

I can provide a test case for the patch when this issue is re-opened, unless someone else is willing to do it.
