[dwm] matching on window title

I'm using dwm hg tip under Debian Testing, trying to set tags according
to the title of a new window. I have things like this in my config.h:

   { "XTerm:xjed:K.*", "plan", False },

but I can't get anything to match. For debugging, I tried adding an
fprintf to tags.c, just after the snprintf, like this:

   fprintf(stderr, "%s\n", prop);

As far as I can see, prop is the string that the rules are trying to
match against, but no matter what program I start, the title portion of
prop is always blank. Amongst other things I tried:

   xterm -title test_title

which I presume should be a definitive test.

What might I be missing in order to make this work?
