Caching mechanism broke the correctness of network update

Bug Description

Byobu uses caching mechanism to using .new files and if it's exists and file size not zero we get data from cached. Code for this is locate in the /usr/bin/byobu-status, function get_status(). The network script return nothing if we have traffic less than NETWORK_BANDWITH. In this case file size will be 0 and we will have incorrect(old) values of network traffic in the byobu status.

Need to have non-zero file size if we don't have any data or change caching mechanism (I think first will be less painful =) )
