another hopefully simple scenario:  the title bar in my bash window on

set up my PS1 variable to contain the results of a few commands (such as
date) it does it every time i press enter.  i'm not sure, but i think this
might be affecting the performance somewhat -- i say this because i have the
same prompt on windows nt where it DOESN'T do that to the title bar and
things proceed more quickly (the windows 98 box is more powerful!).

finally, the question:  is there any way to disable the title bar from

thank you all again for your help!
