IIRC, you're problem was with W95 and also IIRC it always left the last
operation in the title when going to the command prompt.  It's been more
than two years since I last used Cygwin on W95.  I seem to recall that
the first occurrence of the window title changing was B19.  Is it really
worth an effort to change this?
