How to reproduce:

1. Split the screen at least into two regions
2. Create a new window (C-a c)
3. Change the title of the new window (C-a A)

Relevant configuration:

caption always "%{kG}%?%-Lw%?%{bw}%n*%f %t%?(%u)%?%{kG}%?%+Lw%?%50=%{= bY}%h%="
(i.e. window titles are displayed)

Expected behavior:

Window title change is applied in the captions of all regions

Observed behavior:

Title is updated in the current region only.


Switch to the other region, and in that region, switch to another window.  Then the title of the new window also gets updated there.
