When the startup_session file is empty, then running kitty --title FOO does not set the title of the new window to FOO.

if --single-instance is passed and an instance is already open it works

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. set startup_session startup_session in the kitty.conf
  2. ensure startup_session is an empty file
  3. run kitty --title FOO
  4. See the window title is not FOO

Expected behavior
The window title should be FOO
