Are you sure? I did a simple test by putting the following line at the
top of my ~/.bashrc file:
echo You are using bashrc

I did not see the echo on starting a new konsole, but only when i logged
in on a virtual console. Also if you enter "bash" at the commandline,
you will see the echo.

Does this work? Using the same echo test as above I saw no success.
