I have several buttons:

  1)  Normal Xterm
  2)  Named XTerm
  3)  Named XTerm with mc

The "Named XTerm" is a script which open Xdialog and let me enter a name
and activate a checkbox, whether I want to prevent a title change.

To prevent the title change I have copied  "/etc/terminfo/x/xterm-color"
to "/etc/terminfo/m/michelle-color" and since programe like "mc" do  not
know what to do with "michelle-color" I run mc with:

    xterm -tn ${TERMINFO} -n "${TITLE}" -title "${TITLE}" -c mc

thats all.

Thanks, Greetings and nice Day/Evening
