Dear Robert -- I think the original poster's
concern was not the general working of bash
with .bash_profile and .bashrc, but the
specific behavior when bash is started by
an instance of mintty which itself is started
by the X windows server in .startxwinrc -- a
behavior that seems at variance with the normal
bash startup behavior.

My sense of what you wrote was that it
reported testing running a new bash from bash,
which is not the situation of concern ...
