Probably not. I guess that most of the default image viewers by KDE, Gnome, 
etc., don't support a command line argument to set the window title because 
those viewers are full-fledged applications and not simple tools like display 
or xloadimage which simply show an image in an X window without any menu, 
buttons, etc.
