[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#708388: xfce4-terminal: Dynamic titling doesn't work

Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.6.3-2
Followup-For: Bug #708388

My tabs initially show "Untitled", and stay as such until I use the su command
to become root. While being root, the tabs show

root at hostname: /path/to/dir

where /path/to/dir is correctly updated after each use of cd. But using exit to
get back to my normal user, the tab title stays as the last state it had while
being root. So there seems to be a bug somewhere keeping the tab title to get
updated while being non-root.

Best regards,
Torquil Sørensen
