Alright, thanks anyway. I just tweaked my screenrc and learned that mintty 
will always display "caption" as the last line of the terminal while keeping 
status messages in the title bar. I didn't realize screen made a distinction 
between the two. I'm still curious what termcap settings it's using to put the
status notification in the title, though and how to toggle it.
