on my debian/potato incarnation, my rxvt title bars work
like a charm -- the BASH prompt above 
1) sets the rxvt title bar (between \[<esc>]0; and \007\]) to
   who@where: /current/working/directory
2) then shows me, in color, who@where (my login and the
   server name),
3) then my current path, in bold,
4) then a newline
5) and finally the standard '$ '.

does it not work for you? what exactly are you trying?

DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #20 from Will Trillich <will@serensoft.com>
What TERMINAL TYPES are available for "export TERM=xyz"?  Look in
/etc/terminfo or /etc/termcap and pick one similar to your
terminal emulator's capabilities. Common ones are "linux" (for
console), "xterm", "vt102" and "rxvt". See "man terminfo" or "man
termcap" if you're determined to learn the nitty-gritty.
