My /etc/.bash_profile doesn't seem to get executed. According to
wouldn't, which is contrary to other posts I've seen and Cygwin docs. So

I ran mkpasswd -l > /etc/passwd and mkgroup -l /etc/group and still cannot
'su' or 'login' as a different user from bash. Is there something else that
needs to be done after that? What is the preferred way to change users (su
or login) or should both work?
