Re: Terminal window hostname always showing

Ah, thanks I had no idea that -nohostintitle existed.  I did a lot of
searching online first before submitting the question so I should have
stumbled across that at some point.  As soon as I get back to that
machine I'll add the option.

I also appreciate the heuristic tweak.  A couple other machines will
benefit from it especially where the windows are very narrow.
