Bash prompt in X-Windows

On a newly built LFS-6.5 / BLFS system,
when I start X-Windows, the bash promt is getting set to:
PS1='\s-\v\$ '

I have it set in /etc/profile to:
export PS1='\u@\h:\w\$ '

I get the prompt in /etc/profile when on the text consoles or when
I do 'su - anyuser'

When starting X-Windows on previously built LFS/BLFS systems,
the bash prompt does not getclobbered to:
PS1='\s-\v\$ '

What could be causing this on the new system?
