unable to set window title in scree

hi forum,

I have a problem changing the window title on a window in which I start
The situation: my machine is a debian linux machine on which screen is
installed. When I start screen and try to change the window title (using a
small self made script) the window title changes.
Now I go with ssh to another machine. I change the window title using the
same command (a local copy on that mache). Everything OK: the title changes.
But now when I start screen and issue the same script to change the window
title, nothing happens. Any thoughts?

I have downloaded and compiled screen4.0.3 which gives the same problem. I
have searched the archives and tried the strings but without success. 
My script changes the window title by sending the string escape ]  ; string
^G. As said this doesn't work using screen on the remote machine.

thanks in advance, Ruud
