Control of an MDI app title bar

I'd like to manage the contents of my MDI app's title bar; I use SetWindowText to change it, however, as soon as I focus on another child window, the framework changes the titlebar back to the default app Name.  I know I need to override a message, and I've tried, Set & KillFocus, EraseBkgd, and Paint, to no avail.  How can I either a) prevent MFC from tampering with my app's title bar all together, or b) override the tampering to change to the text that I would like?  The text is dynamic and changes with the state of the program.

Name of the document is added to frame window title id frame has style FWS_ADDTOTITLE. This is MFC style. To remove it override frame's PreCreateWindow and delete it.

BOOL CMainFrame::PreCreateWindow( CREATESTRUCT& cs )
{
cs.style &=~FWS_ADDTOTITLE;
return CFrameWnd::PreCreateWindow( cs );
}
