What context are you trying to change your shell in? If you want to
change the shell invoked by the "Cygwin" desktop shortcut, you should edit
the /cygwin.bat file. The shell in /etc/passwd is mostly used by the
incoming terminal connections, e.g., sshd or inetd.
As for the .bashrc not being invoked, see the "Bash Startup Files" section
of the bash info page.
