I have used gnu-screen for a few years. And it makes my daily work more efficiency. And I love it.

But in the recent update of version 4.4
$ screen -v
Screen version 4.04.00 (GNU) 19-Jun-16

It changes the windows title displaying scheme. And all the windows title are set to `bash`. And I searched over the internet and tried many kinds of method, but still cannot make it works as before. So I have to downgrade it to an older version 4.3.

Here is the difference:
For version 4.3:
$ C-a "  
   0 address@hidden:~                                                                                                                                                 $
   1 address@hidden:~                                                                                                                                             $
   2 address@hidden:~                                                                                                                                                 $
   3 address@hidden:~                                                                                                                                                 $

For version 4.4:
$ C-a "
   0 bash                                                                                                                                                            $
   1 bash                                                                                                                                                            $
   2 bash                                                                                                                                                            $
   3 bash                                                                                                                                                            $

All the windows are shown as `bash` as above, and it makes hard to detect which window is running in which working dir or host.

I am not sure why it has such change which will bring so much inconvenient. And I also tried to check the changelog, but unfortunately the change logs end at version 4.3.
