Of course not: that's not a login shell.  As the documentation says,

The INVOCATION section of the manual page explains it in exhaustive detail.

Ok, but that's not what my situation is. I am just logging in, using the display manager, when user has /usr/local/bin/bash as the shell in passwd.

Why doesn't it execute ~/.profile?
