Here the typescript:

address@hidden:/# bash -version
GNU bash, version 2.03.0(1)-release (sparc-sun-solaris)
Copyright 1998 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
address@hidden:/# id
uid=0(root) gid=1(other)
address@hidden:/# /bin/su - bcom -c "id"
The content of .profile is:
echo The content of .profile is:
cat .profile
echo $SHELL has read .profile
/bin/sh has read .profile
uid=120(bcom) gid=129(bcom)
address@hidden:/# usermod -s /bin/bash bcom
address@hidden:/# /bin/su - bcom -c "id"
uid=120(bcom) gid=129(bcom)

As one can see from the last line .profile gets not executed.

Do i oversee something or make something wrong?

Thanks for any help.
