Problems with non binary mounts and / or non Unix style line endings for
text files like bashrc ?<<

No, I've checked for that.  I don't get error messages or any of the other 
strange behavior I've come to expect when I mess up the mounts or the line 
endings.  As far as I can tell, bash just stops reading .bashrc.  I've 
tried placing the file on the other drives also (/ is mounted to my D: 
drive) just in case bash had a funny of where home is, but to no avail.
