Thanks for the suggestion.  I completely agree that your described
behavior is better.  With the fixed tab name I tried to avoid tab
jumping when tab location moves due to changes in tab width that
shifts other tabs after the current one.

Now this is fixed to avoid changing the current tab name.

Yeah, this is how Unicode characters are treated by terminals.
And this problem is not specific to Emacs.  The same clobbering
can be seen even in terminal shell:

Now to avoid this I added space after Unicode characters
only on non-window systems.
