Separate window and icon titles don't make as much sense in the post-Win95 world as in X11/Windows 3 style user interfaces. Judging by the mail we get, the resulting behaviour seems to be surprising to a fair few users. Perhaps we should turn off use of icon titles by default.

In fixing this, I've changed the sense of the control in the Windows UI - what was `Avoid ever using icon title' is now `Separate window and icon titles'. Docs updated accordingly.

Audit trail for this wish.
