Bash Problems - Random Headers when starting bash in X

Ok I have searched and searched and maybe I don't know how to articulate this issue with out just posting the problem I'm having....

Every time I bring up a terminal window I get the following "Header"

declare -x COLORTERM="gnome-terminal"
declare -x CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH="/usr/lib64/qt/include"
declare -x DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS="unix:abstract=/tmp/dbus-xSFd6zqrYQ,guid=dc5e07974559da016842742900000090"

To be honest I cheated and used the .bashrc / .profile files from Ubuntu and all was working fine for a while now and it seems something changed to cause this... any ideas on why I am getting this? I checked my .bashrc and my /etc/profile and it doesn't look like anything is amiss...

Thanks for the help

Yeah that for sure works, Seems after a little investigation this is happenening when editing my PATH...

If the string I'm adding in causes terminal to start a new line (USING nano in bash to edit) thats when it happens.
I just broke up the string which worked plus more organized.
Thanks for the help
