one possibility might be -- having deleted the original message,
wouldn't the 'reply' wind up under its own thread?

DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #28 from Will Trillich <will@serensoft.com> 
Would you like to have rxvt show you useful information in the
TITLE BAR of its X window? For example, to see your "present
working directory" in the title bar, include this in your command
prompt string:
	export PS1="\e]0;\w^V^G\u@\h$ "
Anything between the "\e]0;" and the control-G will be displayed
as the title of the rxvt window. (Here, ^G is preceded by ^V
showing how to insert one into an editor.)
