When running multiple instances of Eclipse on a Windows platform, the Task
Bar icons show only the first few characters of the window title which is
the perspective name (Debug, Java, ...) As a result, it is not easy to
determine which icon corresponds to which workspace.

It would be handy if the value specified by showlocation was displayed at
the beginning of the title. This would result in a fixed, user specified
value being visible in each Task Bar icon.

feature very much.
