Sorry for lack of detail -
Issue occurs in byobu version 4.37, but not in 3.33. Not sure about other versions.
Both above versions were tested with Screen version 4.00.03jw4 (FAU) 2-May-06

Ah, okay. So this issue happens if you haven't chosen your ctrl-a behavior.

Try this... Press ctrl-a, and select your ctrl-a behavior. And then set your shelltitle. Looks like that's working for me.
