The commands contained in ~/.bashrc are executed for every shell invoked
unless the "--norc" option is specified. That's true not only for
interactive shells but also for shells launched to execute scripts,
which is why all my scripts use this shebang line:

!#/bin/bash --norc

If you don't do this, you really don't know what aliases, variables and
shell procedures are defined when your script runs, since the .bashrc
read is that of the invoking user.
