I've had a similar problem.  I expected bashrc to also accept a list of
strings which will be added to bashrc since in the manual [1] it says:

Was this behaviour somehow changed to only accept file-like objects?  I
quite liked the string options because for simple aliases there is no
need for a file-like object. WDYT?
