Yes, same on my machine.

I think this problem is specific to alternative config files (I've got a
".bashrc" for primary computer, ".bashrc-cygwin" for Windows, ".bashrc-android"
for Android, and so on.

Could the default auto-mode-alist entry be tweaked to include any file with
".bashrc" as a prefix?

Why not just add a major mode cookie (comment) at the top of your
non-standardly-named files?

# -*- mode: sh; -*-

    Works for me.

    emacs-24.3 -Q .profile    -> shell-script
    emacs-24.3 -Q .bashrc     -> shell-script

    C-h v auto-mode-alist
      ("\\.[ck]?sh\\'\\|\\.shar\\'\\|/\\.z?profile\\'" . sh-mode)
      . sh-mode)
      . sh-mode)
