Since it appears that I changed something, and it was long ago so I
don't remember if it was /etc/profile or /etc/skel/.bashrc we can't
tell for sure what was the problem.

I have replaced files, not the old ones which I'm sure where there,
but I'm not sure if there was a modified .bashrc (I usually don't
change any of the others).
