Something like this at the beginning of ~/.profile should work nicely:

if [ "$SHELL" = /bin/ksh -a -z "$BASH" -a -x $HOME/bin/bash ]; then
    exec $HOME/bin/bash -login

Note that bash will also use ~/.profile, which is why you want to be
paranoid about making sure you are actually running under ksh.
