The man-page of sh has nothing about a --login option, so I think you are not 
using sh but bash in disguise as shell.

bash(1) does mention a --login option, and that makes the difference between a 
login (startup) shell, and an interactive (sub) shell.
This difference cause different files to be read/processed during start-up.

You can find all the details in bash(1) (type "man bash"), or on the web, for

Hope this helps to track down the cause of your problems.
