RE: xterm title setting

this works for me with (no on Linux but in xterm):

precmd () {
        print -nP -u2 "\033]0;%n@%m:%~\a"

I used to used chpwd as well, but it has some nasty drawbacks. The main
problem is, that title won't be restored if some program changes it. "Some
program" may be zsh as well :-)
