[plug] shell reading/KDE on login

I have just installed RH 6.0 after using RH 5.1 and am using the KDE
desktop but can not get ~/.tschrc (or ~/.cshrc, ~/.bashrc) read on login
(aliases are not read etc). This applies to all users.

/etc/passwd has the shell listed and the following error occurs

"kdepath=/usr/bin:command not found
 kdepath:undefined variable"

After starting X, windows in KDE show the shell rc files have been read
(aliases now operate)

Also is there a single command (for each) to show what the current shell is
and what the current path is?

Help or direction pointing will be appreciated.
