I would go at this a different way.  You are storing loginShell in LDAP, 
correct?  Then simply create a per-user .bashrc or .login file and put that 
in their /home directory, preferrably when initially creating the account by 
means of /etc/skel.  None of the commands are going to be the same as the 
Windows (or I can't imagine them being), so I think this is your best bet.  
Of course you would need to make the .bashrc or .login read-only to the user, 
to prevent him/her changing it.
