Yea, I figured that out the merge idea after I replied.
If you put a contition test in set_ps_display(), the only clean way to
do this is for init_ps_display() to force update_process_title to true
before we call set_ps_display(), then reset it to its original value,
but that sounds pretty ugly. Do we create another function that
unconditionally sets the title, and conditionally call that from the
set_ps_display()? These seem uglier than the if() test. Or add a
