Thanks for the patch, but it does not completely solve the issue. The
UTF‐8 characters can be bigger. I adjusted the buffer size for that es‐
cape string handling and made it not handle too long strings instantly.
This will create more feedback of the silent users, because st will sim‐
ply not respond anymore. If st would just handle the title setting,
then some other commands could overwrite the error, in case someone is
doing that buggy behaviour of virtual terminals wrong.
