I think the titlebar of the "Top level typescript window" should be changed to read "Exec - connected to <connected directory>" or something like it.  /CNDIR could be advised or modified to change the title as the connected directory changed.'

     I think Jellinek''s suggestion is a bad idea.  There is a whole'
lisp enviroment of information relevant to the EXEC process, and'
picking out just the connected directory to be displayed in the EXEC'
window''s title is an arbitrary choice.  Jellinek can certainly ADVISE'
/CNDIR if he wants.  The <LISPUSERS>SYSTAT package will also display '
this information.  Finally, Jellinek''s suggestion doesn''t fit well in'
an environment in which there may be more than one EXEC window, such as'
provided by <LISP>LIBRARY>EXEC package.'
