For login shells, bash will fall back to ~/.profile if ~/.bash_profile and
~/.bash_login aren't present; they shouldn't have to be specifically
I gleaned what I think are the best command lines from the extensive
discussion on this list about 6 months ago. I have posted the .reg file I

execute ~/.bashrc twice, but /etc/profile and ~/.bash_profile only once.
No modification is required to any profile or rc script.
