In the real world I almost never see people actually doing this. I
suppose people find it to bothersome. Terminals are really rather broken
this way. It would have been nice to go back to when the specs were
being made and get support for
getting-out-a-sensible-window-title-to-the-terminal. I suppose its not
to late to change bash and such to at least show the directory name you
are in when on the shell?
