I have this "problem" with both your rpm on FC2 and when compiled from 
sources (1.9.1-patched 2.0.0-patched [now 2.0.1 beta]). The title bar 
comes and goes, seemingly at random (I've not systematically test this 
so I haven't found an underlying cause) when a new X11() device is 
started. Mainly a more complex plot (over several lines and commands) 
will fail to produce the title bar, if I then close that device and open 
another using something simple, say plot(1:10) then I more often than 
not get the title bar. I say more often than not, because sometimes I 
have to run that command a few times, closing the opened faulty device 
window in between to get the title bar to appear. Same result running R 
from within xemacs/ess.
