Your point wasn't clear, and it doesn't test out either.

Browse-200 on Sugar 0.110 does not override the journal entry title if
it has been set by the user, and Utkarsh's patch does not change that.

There is a use case for giving a saved instance a title; which is
where the title that would be used is not satisfactory.

I don't see any evidence before the patch that a user supplied title
is overridden.
