Bug Description

Version: 4.37-1

When starting and exiting byobu several times in a row (e.g. for testing some stuff), for each start there seems a "apt-get -s -o Debug::NoLocking=true upgrade" process running, clogging up the system more and more with every byobu start.

I'd expect that

a) just one such process is running at a time, especially if no more than one byobu was running at a time,
b) the process gets killed if byobu is stopped

Thanks for the bug report, definitely a problem.

I'll probably solve it by using run-one if available, and if not, hacking a lock into place.
