Bug Description

If you sudo -s to a root shell, and then run byobu, a ~/.byobu directory will exist in your non-root user's home directory, but the files/dirs will be owned by root. This will make it impossible to change these files (select a different profile, toggle status notifications) as your non-root user.

This bug was fixed in the package byobu - 2.20-0ubuntu1

---------------
byobu (2.20-0ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * byobu: make this script set -e, such that it will fail if byobu-janitor
    exits non-zero
  * byobu-janitor: check that ~/.byobu is writable; print an error message
    and exit non-zero if not; handles odd situation where user launches
    byobu from a sudo/root shell, and root owns their ~/.byobu dir, but then
    they launch as non-root sometime later, LP: #394147
  * profiles/common: add a backtick helper hack to print %-1
  * profiles_generator/profile.skel: improve handline of window overflow
    on the caption line; use a ... elipsis at the beginning or end of line
    to show that there are more windows or information available than
    immediately shown, LP: #369828
  * debian/source_byobu.py: add apport hooks for byobu
