XWindows/xterm set title escape sequence I'd imagine.
 "\033]0;<string>\033\\" or in english.. ESC ] 0;blah ESC \ -- then the
title becomes "blah" -- there's a bit of disagreement about what the end
sequence should be, xterm IIRC takes both the BEL (^G) and the ESC \
sequence, but screen only takes the ESC \ sequence. There's documentation
in the console_codes(4) man page on most Linux distro's.
