Please remember you're talking to /volunteers/ here.  Also, please learn 
not to put your replies at the top of email.

As to your problem, I believe you've hit the fact that, if a script file 
does an action that is not permitted, then the individual line that 
causes the problem is not automatically echoed (giving you a clue about 
how to debug it) but instead just says

"bash: <scriptname>: <error message>".

In other words, I believe that your problem is caused by a line /inside/ 
/etc/bash.bashrc, not the permissions on the file itself.

Have a look through, and see if there's anything that you wouldn't 
expect a normal user to be able to do.

As a last resort (you /should/ be able to fix this!) post the contents 
of the file here for people to look at.
