Multiple instances of rxvt should have unique titles by default, and this should be handled by rxvt instead of some ugly ANSI character sequence stuck in .login, .profile, or (lord forbid) .bashrc.

    I add a script into .bashrc that names the terminal window after the pseudoterminal that it uses unless the shell is running on a real terminal or the console. Unfortunately, this is appears to create a race condition somewhere.

    Generally people don't want unique titles. Also, consider
    having windows launched using the -title option.
