I don't know what the difference is, but my Emacs windows tell me the
buffer name and the host it's editing them on. Alt-Tab between windows
there is no problem.

Maybe this snippet from .emacs will help?

;; default to better frame titles
(setq frame-title-format
      (concat  "%b - [email protected]" (system-name)))

In your .emacs file in your home-dir, you should have a section
  ;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom.

If you to that add
  '(inhibit-splash-screen t)

You get the desired behaviour.

*Disclaimer* I don't run F8's emacs, I run the CVS build, as I can get
 'pretty' (read "easier on the eyes") fonts there.
