As a long shot, and I don't mean to insult anyone, but what is the name
of your .bash profile, and are you sure it's executing?  My bash man
page mentions a lot of profile files, none of which is called ".bash";
bash seems to have a mind of its own when it comes to deciding which
profile files to read at which times; and it's not uncommon to set a
variable and not export it, which means that echo works but nothing else
