Ah, from the man page:
If Bash is invoked as sh, it tries to mimic the behavior of sh as
closely as possible. For a login shell, it attempts to source only
`/etc/profile' and `~/.profile', in that order. The -noprofile option
may still be used to disable this behavior. A shell invoked as sh does
not attempt to source any other startup files.
So you'll most likely need to run chsh and enter /bin/bash as the shell
to be used.
