[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#659346: xfce4-terminal: --title option prevents dynamically set title

Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.4.8-1+b1
Severity: normal

The man page describes the --title, -T option as a way of setting the
INITIAL window title via the command-line.

I presumed this to be the equivalent of setting the "Initial Title" via
Preferences, General tab. Consequently, I would expect the preference
"Dynamically-set title" to operate in the same way regardless whether
the intital title was set via preferences or overriden by the
commandline parameter --title.

However, when using the commandline option, the dynamic title option has
no effect: the dynamic part of the title is NEVER displayed.
