I just realized that, although one approach is to unset the
PROMPT_COMMAND variable, another approach is to use the "screen"
command of "defdynamictitle off" in my "~/.screenrc" file. With
this setting, the content of the PROMPT_COMMAND variable does not
have an effect when opening new screen-window.
For a previously opened screen-window, the related "screen" command of "dynamictitle off" lets you to turn off dynamic changes to the title of the screen-window.

Thanks, thanks, thanks!
I googled your prompt command, it is probably your system default.
My "/etc/bashrc" looks to be exactly the same one as in the book that you referenced. That explains the particular content of PROMPT_COMMAND.
...it is the culprit and recommends "unset PROMPT_COMMAND" ...
I stumbled upon unsetting PROMPT_COMMAND when I looked at another system where the window titles persist... and I noticed that that system does not have PROMPT_COMMAND set. I confirmed that unsetting that shell variable on my current system does the trick.
(I've referred to the manual page for "screen" many times, but somehow I missed the section that explains the "title-string escape-sequence" and the "title-escape-sequence".)
