Run sth. like "echo date >> /etc/bash/bashrc" to see the effect.
no real info and simple test case works fine for me
post all relevant info into the bug (including `emerge --info` like the reporting page said), as well as attach all of the files bash is sourcing (so your profile and rc files)
I had this line
in my .bashrc, probably not needed ?
a login shell gets the env from both login and rc scripts. an rc shell gets the env from just rc scripts. that is how the installed bash scripts are written.
generally, since a login shell is always the parent (at some point) of an rc shell, there should be no need to reload the login env.
