Yes, this was fixed prior to base-files 3.7-1. Chances are, you made
modifications to /etc/profile, so upgrading base-files no longer copies
/etc/defaults/etc/profile over your modifications. If you don't need your
modifications, then just manually do that copy yourself, and you will once
again start picking up improvements to the startup scripts next time
base-files is upgraded.
