No, if you start a program from a system menu or an icon from a panel,
.bashrc is not used at all, only .bash_profile is used. Moreover,
.bash_profile is executed only once when you log on. In my computers,
.bash_profiles executes .bashrc and .bashrc prepends the directories
to the PATH only if it is not already present (if I start xterm by
clicking an icon on the panel, if first takes information from
.bash_profile {and thus .bashrc in my computers} and then executes
.bashrc). Thus if I modify PATH in .bashrc, the new PATH setting will
be visible in a new xterm (no need to log off and on) but not in
programs started from the panel or system menu. For that it is
necessary to log off and on (or use a wrapper that will execute
