.bashrc not working (and yes I've read the FAQ etc as you'll see)


Forgive the defensive addendum but I've no wish to be either flamed or
ignored when I've tried available pathways to solving this.


.bashrc not working and yes my $home variable is correctly defined but I
put a copy of .bashrc into / anyway just in case.
The --login and -i switches are used.
I even used the --rcfile switch and pointed it directly to my .bashrc
file at which point cygwin just bombs out.

.bashrc file contains only the line

Alias ls='ls -al --color=auto'

I even made .bashrc executable using the command chmod +x (just in case)
but this changed none of the behaviour.   What am I missing.
