Description From 2003-03-23 20:17:22
When using bash in xterm, the title of xterm follows the current dir (pwd). In
Eterm this is not like this.

Setting another TERM value makes a new bash process change the title. 
---
This example is run in an Eterm:

$ echo $TERM
Eterm
$ cd /
$ cd /tmp # the title didn\'t change
$ TERM=xterm
$ cd /
$ cd /tmp # the title didn\'t change
$ bash # the title immediately reflects the current dir
$ cd /
$ cd /tmp # the title changed with every `cd\'
$ exit
$ cd /
$ cd /tmp # the title didn\'t change
$ 

mc sets the title even in Eterm, but when one exits mc, the title isn\'t
changed anymore: it shows the wrong dir.

It\'s because of Eterm not listed in /etc/bashrc.
Fix is trivial, so I won\'t release new bash package because of this issue.

bash-2.05b-alt5:
/etc/bashrc: added Eterm to the list of terminal names which support title change escape sequence.
