I don't know how to make that work with term-mode, but an alternative to
outright removing that line would be to do something like:

    if [ -z "$INSIDE_EMACS" ]; then
        # set window title, unless inside emacs
    PS1="$PS1"'\u@\h $ '             # user@host $<space>

Thought it was worth mentioning.
