I tried xwininfo, xlsclients, xlsatoms

when I use xwininfo I get

xwininfo: Please select the window about which you
          would like information by clicking the
          mouse in that window.

xwininfo: Window id: 0x3800002 "Proroad"

  Absolute upper-left X:  95
  Absolute upper-left Y:  29
  Relative upper-left X:  0
  Relative upper-left Y:  0
  Width: 1000
  Height: 700
  Depth: 8
  Visual Class: PseudoColor
  Border width: 0
  Class: InputOutput
  Colormap: 0x27 (installed)
  Bit Gravity State: NorthWestGravity
  Window Gravity State: NorthWestGravity
  Backing Store State: NotUseful
  Save Under State: no
  Map State: IsViewable
  Override Redirect State: no
  Corners:  +95+29  -57+29  -57-171  +95-171
  -geometry 1000x700-57+29

But Proroad is not the name of the window, its just the label.
When I have an "xterm -n TEST" and use xwininfo I get TEST and not xterm.
