Gnome-terminal title flag no longer works
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
The --title flag for gnome-terminal no longer works under RH 6.2;
it uses the default option username@host:current-working-directory
under all circumstances.
This is not a bug. --title is overridden by PROMPT_COMMAND set via /etc/bashrc.
I agree it's not a bug, --title affects the initial title, if you have
bash set up to override the title then that's what's supposed to happen.
