The default .bashrc has a commented out function "settitle()". Just
uncomment that line, restart bash, and you'll be able to run "settitle
Your Title" (no quotes necessary). The function works for the console
window, xterm, and rxvt.
If your .bashrc doesn't have that function, look in /etc/skel/.bashrc, or
search this list for "settitle". Note the control characters.
