Login window needs window title text for easier integration with password manager applications

My use case is this. I'm using KeePass 2 password manager application on Windows 7/8/8.1 and I'd like to be able to easily log in to Spotify using my password manager application's global "auto-type" shortcut key when I have my encrypted password database open (because sometimes Spotify doesn't "remember me" anymore or I need to reinstall or something).

 

It works by having set up the correct window title in KeePass 2 settings in my password entry for my Spotify account. Then when I have the correct window active and hit the auto-type shortcut key, KeePass automatically fills in my username and password and hits enter to login (only when my password database is not currently locked).

 

Unfortunately this does not currently work when starting up Spotify because the Spotify window does not have a window title set until you have logged in. See the attached image. Oddly after first logging in and then logging out, even the login window does have the window title "Spotify" (as it should be), so Spotify's current behaviour is also inconsistent.

 

Please make it so the login window has the correct window title also on Spotify startup, thank you!
