You have not described a bug, since you have not demonstrated that bash is
behaving other than how it is documented, nor have you provided answers to
any of the questions you've been asked. You haven't even determined whether
or not bash is being invoked as a login shell at some unspecified point in
the mystery login sequence you're using.
