Sorry to be adding to my own post, but I logged in afresh, did not hit
Ctrl_C, and tried ps-e on a neighbouring terminal.  I got various bash
processes(2 or three constantly), id, grep and egrep. Bash processes
would go defunct, and others would start. Then agetty took over and
spoiled the fun.

So I did the obvious thing and sorted it. Either .bash_profile or
.bashrc was crap. It happened to be .bashrc. Sorry for bothering folks

     All the Best
