Bug Description

On EC2 Ubuntu 12.04 instance created from: ami-3d4ff254 (us-east-1, 64-bit, ebs)

~$ /usr/bin/sudo /sbin/iptables -A OUTPUT -d -j DROP
~$ byobu

at this point, byobu will hang (sometimes it starts, sometimes it doesn't)

So if, after you block the metadata service you also remove the flag ~/.byobu/.metadata_available, then it should automatically detect that metadata is no longer available.

The problem is when byobu launches once when metadata is available, and then launches or runs some other time when it's *not* available, but the cached flag still exists.
