Maybe byobu-config creates a file named reload-required at the wrong place

Bug Description

byobu-config creates "reload-required" at $BYOBU_CONFIG_DIR, but no one else handles the file. I think it should be placed at $BYOBU_RUN_DIR, because lib/byobu/reboot_required checks if reload-required exists there and shows a notification to press F5.

That said, toggling the status notifications and changing the escape key are applied without pressing F5, so creating the file might be useless now.

Another excellent catch. reload-required should always be in run-dir, not config-dir. Thanks!
