 I think GRASS is not honoring the standard `.bashrc` in home by purpose if
 this is what are you trying to achieve. There are some discussion on
 mailing list about that.

 I'm afraid that this is wontfix/invalid (feature, not a bug). Perhaps
 should be documented better. Feel free to suggest location and wording.
