GNU bash will not read .profile if you also have a .bash_profile file.

What do you see in your HOME directory with:

        $ ls -ld .*profile .*rc

In my local setup here, I see something like this:

    $ pwd
    /home/giorgos
    $ ls -ld .bash* .sh* .profile
    -rw-------  1 giorgos  giorgos  - 30103 Jul 11 18:47 .bash_history
    -rw-rw-r--  1 giorgos  giorgos  -   318 Jul 11 17:47 .bash_profile
    -rw-rw-r--  1 giorgos  giorgos  -  3742 Jul 11 18:17 .bashrc
    -rw-rw-r--  1 giorgos  giorgos  -  1006 Mar 29 07:19 .profile
    -rw-rw-r--  1 giorgos  giorgos  -  1433 Nov 18  2004 .shrc
    $
