One last thing.. how do I get it to only display user@host rather than the full path that I'm currently in on the remote server?

I use the prompt for that information[*].  The whole reason for using %w is so that the *shell* (local or remote) can set the title of the tab.  If you want the shell to supply another value, then you need to modify the code I supplied to do whatever you need done.  Perhaps you want to use another format specifier in the tab settings and not use the shell at all.  Maybe I misunderstood the question.  The "Insert" drop-down in the tab configuration screen will show what is available, if you don't want the shell to fill it in.

[*] A typical prompt for me is: "garry@ifr$ ".  I look at the window title to remind me of the path.  I also never show the tabs in konsole.  That way there's always enough real estate for the path in my terminal title bar.  It works for me.  At work, I also use different profiles to get different background colors on terminal sessions depending on what host I am logged into.  Then I use different menu items (icons, that is) to log to different hosts.  More visual cues to make sure I know my context so I don't do something stupid.

Hey Garry,  So please don't think I'm ungrateful here.. even if the konsole tabs get long.. it's still VERY helpful to have teh hostnames in there.  Let me ask, how'd you figure out how what code/syntax was needed to do what it does to the tab names?  I'm looking at it and I can't figure out what part does what.. exactly.

Also in konsole what is the difference, or how does one differentiate between tab and remote tab?
