But the point is that the special value for icon-title-format is not all
that helpful at avoiding that bug. Certainly not more than

(setq icon-title-format (setq frame-title-format "blah))

... and even then the problem may happen anyway.

Plus, the KDE bug requires an specific configuration of KWin, so it is
not a frequent case at all.

At first I thought that Emacs was buggy, so I created an Emacs bug
report. Then we discovered that KDE is buggy and closed the issue, but
in the meantime I noticed that Emacs changing the frame title when it is
minimized can be problematic, and thus created another bug report
suggesting to set the default of icon-title-format to stay in sync with
frame-title-format. Somehow Eli mixed those two issues and introduced a
change to icon-title-format thinking on the original bug report.
