alias ssh ssh_wrapper

and define ssh_wrapper to be

ssh $* ; settitle.

(where settitle dos the above sequence for settingthe xterm title)
in sh I'd use a sh function..

in csh I use:

        if ("$TERM" == "xterm") then
                alias   hdr     'echo -n "^[]2;\!*^G"'
                alias   ihdr    'echo -n "^[]1;\!*^G"'
                alias   newhdr  'hdr "${user}@${hostname}:$cwd"'
                alias   newihdr 'ihdr "${hostname}"'
                alias   p       'newhdr; set prompt="${user}@${hostname}:"'
                alias p 'set prompt="$USER@${hostname}:$cwd:t(\\!) " '
        alias cd 'cd \!*; p'
        alias chdir 'chdir \!*; p'
        alias pushd 'pushd \!*; p'
        alias popd 'popd \!*; p'
        alias ssh 'ssh \!*; p'
