Although it wasn't clear from the way I said it, I do run xterm after X
In the start-up script, I have
# Xwin -rootless -multiplemonitors -clipboard
# xterm -geometry +34+5
Then from the xterm launched above, I do
# TERM=xterm; export TERM
# xterm -e bash -i -c "ssh -X user@remote"

I suspect this to be the case.

xterm -T "my title" works for me with XWin-4.2.0-28. This is different
functionality, though -- I was talking about a window title that updates
automatically to show the current directory.

It makes no difference if I change the Windows color depth (I tried
16-bit and 32-bit). Or do you mean some parameter to Xwin?
