Bug Description

I have the NAME env var set in ~/.bashrc. It is set to my name and email address. When I run byobu, it errors out because it does not set the NAME variable under certain use cases but then attempts to use it later on.

byobu should be using a namespace variable (BYOBU_NAME), always setting the variable (NAME= at the top of the file), or always unsetting the variable.
