Kevin,

You can set CYGWIN_NOTITLE=1 to turn the constant updating of the title off.
I believe there are other variants of this environment variable which allow
similar control.  These are not "bash features" per se, since they were added
by Sergey as part of the cygwin.dll.  As such, you won't find documentation
for them with bash.  If you want to statically set the window title to 
something, set the environment variable above and use the "title" command
of DOS to set the string you want.  As an example, the following sets a title
for the window which is running bash to "bash" on NT:

cmd /c title bash

Similar gyrations should do the same on 95.  Hope this helps!
