Issue with mintty: title not updated when background process exists

I have defined the PS1 variable as follow
PS1='\[\e]0;\w\a\]\[\e[32m\]\u@\h \[\e[35m\]\w\[\e[0m\]\n\$ '
so that the cur dir is set as title of the window.

This generally work for both mintty or cmd.
But after the sequence
   Luc@Mulan ~
   $ emacs &
   [1] 371
   Luc@Mulan ~
   $ cd bin
   Luc@Mulan ~/bin
the title of the mintty widow remain to "~".

The same sequence with cmd window change the title to "~/bin"

The title is correctly updated only after I close emacs and push a 
return to the main window.

Any explanation? Thanks
