What is the correct place to define PATH.  I have usally defined it in 
.bash_profile but this doesnt appear to get called when you start a gnome 

I want to be able to set the PATH when I start a gnome terminal session.   
BASHRC doesnt seem the right place because you can sometimes end up with 
things being added to the PATH twice.
