On a Debian-based system running KDE 3.5.10 I see several files that

Run once upon login.
List of previous commands for recall/edit/re execution
Run once upon logout
I believe equivalent to .profile
Run once for each interactive shell, after .profile
The main difference between .profile and .bashrc is that
.profile only gets run when you start a "login shell",
but .bashrc gets run for all shells.
So, for example, if you use
$ su -
you'll run root's .profile and .bashrc, but
only runs root's .bashrc
