"konsole can be configured to set the title differently, you can control it by adjusting your currently used profile. put a '%w' where you want your the escape sequence of your shell to appear (read 'background answer' for how to do this). the problem with 'autossh' seems to be, that it does not indicate to konsole that you are now on a 'remote' host...

background answer:

the title of a konsole tab (or xterm) is controled by 'escape sequencing' coming from your shell. read 'How to change the title of an xterm and put those sequences into the shell configurations of every machine you ssh to."
