Yes, I had $PROMPT_COMMAND set to 'history -a', but after I unset it by commenting it out of my .bashrc and doing "unset PROMPT_COMMAND", the hardstatus in the window title still disappears when using screen.

In other words, $PROMPT_COMMAND didn't affect the window title behavior.

Do you have $PROMPT_COMMAND set in your terminal? Does it affect the title?

Hi,

I'm having a problem with the hardstatus in the window title disappearing using screen version 4.2.1.

The only 2 lines in my ~/.screenrc are:

termcapinfo xterm* 'hs:ts=\E]2;:fs=\007:ds=\E]2;screen\007'
hardstatus string "%h [screen %n%?: %t%?]"

In GNU screen version 4.0.3 that I used previously, it set the hardstatus to be in the window title to something like:

computer_name ~ [screen 0: bash]

However, after upgrading GNU screen to version 4.2.1, the "[screen 0: bash]" part of the hardstatus in the window title disappears after I hit enter in the terminal. The "computer_name ~" part stays there. However, the "[screen 0: bash]" reappears when switching windows (e.g. doing a "C-a n"), or creating a new window ("C-a c").
