The display engine calls the function which produces the frame's title
very frequently.  You have just made redisplay much slower due to this
call (abbreviate-file-name is a large and complex function, and you
call Lisp on top of that), and caused most redisplay cycles prfoduce
more garbage.  Is it really worth it?
