Bug Description

In tmux if I use Ctrl+b c to create a window, the new window starts at the current working directory.
But if I use byobu and press F2 to create a window, it always starts at the directory when byobu is first launched.
For example if I run byobu at the root directory /, then in byobu i cd to /home,
and then I press F2 to create another window, the starting directory for that windows would be in the root directory / .

But in tmux it works correctly.

I'm unable to reproduce this with:

byobu version 5.73
tmux 1.8

What version of byobu/tmux are you seeing this problem in?

Hmm, I'm still unable to reproduce this issue.

Can you please rm -rf ~/.byobu, or at least move it aside, and launch a fresh one? Perhaps there's an old configuration lingering in there...
