The tabs echo what the title of the window is.  What you want to
investigate is how to change the title of the window.  I'm not surprised
that Eterm doesn't obey the standard xterm control sequences to get and set
the title... it screws up so many other things, why not that as well?

As far as editors go, I note that by default gnuemacs as distributed by
Debian doesn't change the title of the xterm it's running in, although that
may be an artifact of how mine is configured.  I have no idea of what
xemacs does and don't really care.  Vim handles it just fine.
