Internet Explorer Titlebar shows hostname

We just upgraded to IE7 and the hostname is now showing in the title bar when a window opens with the all the bars turned off except the stausbar.  location and menu are off.  Is there an option in the group policy that controls this?  We have some web based apps that rely on the titlebar and it is giving us a headache.

If your network is set up like mine then yes, Group Policy is the culprit. It's called branding.
There is information and "fixes" for this listed here.

All PCs on the domain.  It didn't happen when were on IE6.  The domain admins are dead set that it is a feature in IE7 that can't be changed.  Is it?  But I think it has to do with some chagnes they made in GP that hosed IE for a couple of hours until they made some changes and pushed a forced update script.

I just made up a test file with a blank title.  In IE8, it puts up the URL / file name and path in the title bar.  If I give it a title, it puts up the title.  I've blanked the branding on my copy of IE8 so I don't see that part.
