Possibly.  The thing is that no other WM has this problem.  (Except
for the ones I tried, we have a good user base, and nobody ever
complained about this except for me...)

I know nothing about these protocols...  Let me try to put some code
-- our application sets the title using this code:

    if (!utf8_atom) {
      utf8_atom = XInternAtom(XtDisplay(X->frame), "UTF8_STRING", FALSE);
                  XtNtitleEncoding, utf8_atom,
                  XtNiconNameEncoding, utf8_atom,

Does it look like there's a problem here?

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
