May be I'm don't explained clearly enough. I need dynamic title, not static.
For example, I type:
$some_ncurses_appname -arg1 -arg2 <CR>
And after I pressed enter key I want xterm title changed to:
"-=xterm=- myhost.mydomain: some_ncurses_appname -arg1 -arg2".

zsh uses preexec() builtin function to accomplish this - a function which is
just before a command is executed, and I haven't found any way to do this in
bash. Look at http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Xterm-Title-6.html if I'm again not
described my problem clearly enough.

Thank you, and have a nice day.
