Getting the title via control sequence is often compiled out for
security reasons.  See http://securityvulns.com/Edocument128.html ,
the "window title reporting" section.  The long and short of it is so
that a malicious text file, when cat'ed (or something similar), can't
set the title to a command, request the title (this putting the title
on the command line in the absense of a 'read'), and trick the user
into pressing enter.
