Hello Jim,

There is no support in KDE 4 for setting different window and tab
titles yet - the priority was getting good automatically chosen tab
titles out of the box.  There is a wishlist report open for this -
http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=162326 once that is done,
an escape sequence to set different tab and window text would be possible.
