Now that's strange, because AFAICT it _does_ report the proper title, or
at least mc is _somehow_ able to restore it upon exit. Do you have some
fallback(s) in place to get the title, ie. something other than what you
are trying to do within the 5 seconds?

As I wrote in my original mail, I'm using Slackware-8.1's standard Xterm
from XFree86-4.2.0:

| [zlatko disclosure]:~/tmp$ xterm -v
| XFree86 4.2.0(165)

Please let me know if you need any additional information.
