gnome-terminal can be started as gnome-terminal --login and
gnome-terminal --nologin. Does this happen with both of those?

If it's not a "is this a login shell or not" problem, then check 
out /etc/profile.d/ as RH has a lot of *.d directories in /etc
and one of the files in /etc/profile.d is '' (which
I personally loathe and spent ages hunting down to remove, but 
tastes differ :)). It is referred to in the profile and bashrc
files in /etc, so putting your alias in there might be better than
where you have it already.
