Bug Description

screenbin currently expects screen-profiles in the guest.

Extend this support for byobu in the guest.

===============
SRU Verification

Without the fix, screenbin simply won't work with a Karmic instance in EC2. With the fix, it should work just fine.

First, find the image ID from:
 * http://uec-images.ubuntu.com/releases/karmic/release/

Run a karmic instance in EC2:
 $ http://uec-images.ubuntu.com/releases/karmic/release/

Run screenbin:
 $ screenbin

If it works, it should give you the command line to run to attach to the screen in Read-Write mode, and another command line you can give your guests (or just you in another terminal) for Read-Only mode.

This bug was fixed in the package screenbin - 1.4-0ubuntu1

---------------
screenbin (1.4-0ubuntu1) lucid; urgency=low

  * screenbin: add support for karmic guests, which use byobu rather than
    screen-profiles; increase the security slightly by execing the guest's
    screen attachment; LP: #471917

We should SRU this fix to Karmic. Unfortunately, I didn't test screenbin with *karmic* in the EC2 guest until very, very late.

The references in the screenbin code that calls "screen-profiles" should do byobu || screen-profiles.

The patch is straightforward.

Without this, screenbin simply does not work with Karmic EC2 guests.

Anyone who can test the proposed package? If not, the proposed update will be removed again. Thanks!
