bug#14788: frame-title-format unable to alter frame title

Until recently I had this line in my .emacs in order to get the file path into the title bar of emacs (I work with files with the same name in different locations, don't even go there)

(setq frame-title-format "%f")

Last week I upgraded my system and it stopped working.

frame-title-format seems to be readonly in this new system

Emacs: 24.2.1 (i686-redhat-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.6.4) of 2013-06-11 on 
Window Manager: Gnome 3
OS: Fedora 18
Linux Kernel: 3.9.6-200.fc18.i686.PAE

Like an idiot I don't have the exact stats for my old system

Emacs: approx 21
Window Manager : Gnome 2
OS: Fedora 13
Linux Kernel : ??


I got around it using modify-frame-parameters for 'name on a post command hook.
