The fix for bug #24350 doesn't completely solve the problem with the terminal title being set in WeeChat 0.3.0. When weechat.look.set_title=off, the title is still changed, although not to "weechat 0.3.0" as happens when weechat.look.set_title=on.

I get different results from two different terminals and launch methods when weechat.look.set_title=off:

1. Under plain xterm, simply launching `weechat-curses` changes the default title from "xterm" to "Terminal".

2. Under a GNU Screen session running inside Konsole, launching `:screen -t weechat 1 su -l -c weechat-curses myusername` overrides the terminal title being set by screen's "-t" option (i.e. "weechat"), and the title is instead set to screen's default title ("bash") as if the "-t" option had not even been specified. This doesn't happen with WeeChat and earlier -- the title is correctly set to what I specified ("weechat").

Both of these behaviors are undesirable. When weechat.look.set_title=off, WeeChat should not touch the terminal title at all, not even to "reset" it to some value it thinks is a default.
