The default cygwin prompt contains escape characters that set the window
title to contain the CWD.  Thus anything you set the title to will be
overwritten the next time a prompt is printed.  You need to either
modify the prompt so that it doesn't try to set the window title, or
change the prompt to include the desired window title.
