If you start gnome-terminal in gnome, and then log out saving settings,
when you log in again the window title is blank (and shows up as '???' in
the panel).

gnome-terminal code looks correct to me; this is likely a session manager
or gnome-libs problem. Needs a fairly in-depth investigation.

Comment 2 Preston Brown 2000-02-16 15:36:59 UTC
any progress here?

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2000-02-17 17:49:59 UTC
It works for me in Rawhide if you set the title with the --title command line
if you set the title with terminal escape sequences it deliberately doesn't
remember the title, since this is typically used to report current directory.
