Description sardisson 2005-04-29 09:13:27 UTC
On Mac OS X, the application/product name and "title" metadata should not be
used for the title of the document window.  Instead, only the filename should
appear as the window title.

See Apple Human Interface Guidelines: Window Appearance

and The Mac OS X File System: Display Names
for the definition of display names (the filename as it appears in the Finder,
i.e. with or without filename extension, depending on user's display perference).

Yes the Apple HIG states that the only thing that should be in the top label
should be the document name.  However, X11 does not allow this.  Will this be in
the native version?

Also, this will break automated testing in the f_windowfuncs automated test
script.  I suggest reworking these tests so that windows titles are not tested
for the Mac builds.
