Bash issues on reinstall

I just installed F13 and for some reason the default bash aliases (like "ll" for "ls -l") weren't included, and the prompt is "bash-4.1$" rather than
"[user at host dir]$".
I keep /home on a separate partition to make these reinstalls easier, but
I always back up and erase the hidden configuration directories to minimize
compatibility problems, expecting that these will be built as needed.
The first-run wizard noticed my preexisting directory and seemed to deal
with it fine. It offered to reset SE labels, etc.
The first time I did the install, I forgot to include the /home partition,
so it put it on /'s partition. The bash issues mentioned here were not
seen then. Rather than fix it, I just started over (sometimes I prefer
to start over rather than hack).
Can anyone tell me how to avoid this issue? I don't think I'm doing
anything different from past upgrades.
