Something in my .bashrc is preventing gdm logins

When I try to login using gdm, I get a very brief black screen, and then I'm dumped right back at the login prompt. Doesn't matter if I choose wayland or X, same thing.

If I login from a tty with "startx", that works fine.

If I rename my ".bashrc" file (with years of accumulated aliases and exports), then gdm starts working again.

How can I figure out what is breaking it?

Fedora 28 on a ThinkPad T480s.
