 Since you are running as root (the '#' in the prompt), check root's
.bashrc (if it exists) and .bash_login.  In particular, check
anything setting the path.  Also, if bash is invoked as 'sh' the
behaviour is apparently different.  See the "source filename"
explanation in 'man bash'.

 Alternatively, perhaps ~/ (i.e. /root) is not writable by root.  Or
even not readable.  I was going to suggest you checked that '/' and
'/tmp' were not full [ that would be 100% full for root, including
any reserved space ], but I guess that if X starts then it has
managed to write in /tmp.
