Bug Description

Using recent server images (today, yesterday), byobu is spawning dozens of byobu-status instances.

In an OpenStack environment, this caused the nested kvm instance to consume 200% CPU and makes the system almost unusable.

Killing all byobu, byobu-status and tmux processes returns the system to normal.

This bug was fixed in the package byobu - 5.53-0ubuntu1

byobu (5.53-0ubuntu1) saucy; urgency=low

  * usr/bin/byobu-launch, usr/lib/byobu/ec2_cost,
    usr/lib/byobu/hostname, usr/lib/byobu/include/shutil,
    usr/lib/byobu/ip_address: LP: #1208853
    - revert this recent commit, as it appears to have some unintended
      consequences, and it was just cleaning up some false positive
      bashism hits
  * usr/share/byobu/profiles/bashrc: LP: #1208844
    - revert override of term
  * usr/bin/byobu-prompt, usr/bin/, usr/share/man/man1/byobu-
    disable-prompt.1, usr/share/man/man1/byobu-enable-prompt.1,
    usr/share/man/man1/byobu-enable-prompt.1 =>
    usr/share/man/man1/byobu-prompt.1, usr/share/man/man1/
    - add some documentation and an interactive utility for toggling
      on and off the byobu-prompt, which is hinted in the inline
      bashrc comment
