Hi Lennart

I tried  (setq frame-title-format "%f - Emacs"), it's cool.

However, the full filename of "%f" is usually too long.
Can I truncate the string with fixed length?

In EmacsW32 I use

  (setq frame-title-format "%b - Emacs")

This is probably what people on ms windows expect. Is that what people
on other GUI systems expect as well?
