Yes, thanks for setting the record straight.

One more nit for completeness: according to the bash man page ~/.bashrc (which 
sources /etc/bashrc in Fedora) is interactive shell only stuff, so sourcing 
profile.d stuff from /etc/bashrc happens only for interactive, non-login 
shells.  The man page doesn't mention /etc/bashrc at all so I suppose bash 
doesn't read it directly.
