I like to pop up a screen session with pre-opened SSH connections to the primary servers that I administrate at the office. I give these windows each a very brief name, typically 2-4 characters, so they appear in my screen status bar with those names. So I'll have a screen entry that looks like
0$ jen1 ...
Now, when I need to switch to that server and do anything even as simple as fetch a directory listing, that name suddenly expands and becomes
The same happens for each and every window as I access it, making my status bar quickly overflow the horizontal width of my screen. I would like to lock the name in place at window creation time and prevent client applications from changing it. I don't want any applications to be able to change the screen window title (quite the opposite of what lots of people seem to be asking). This becomes especially cumbersome once I change to that screen and open a directory somewhere. Then the screen title becomes
I want it to only change the active status so it will always read either
`0$ jen1` or `(0*$ jen1)`
Is there a way for me to lock the window name in and prevent changing it?
