The whole client area is redrawn. In this case it's a matlab plot going
over a somewhat high latency network and everything inside the window is
redrawn... Of course the title must change as you say but I wouldn't
have thought that would require the rest of the window to be redrawn.
OTOH I know pretty much nothing about X programming :-/
