Bug Description

  affects ubuntu/byobu

When hitting F8 and renaming the window with a space inside, the command throws
an error and doesn't actually rename the window. "C-b ," from tmux's default
config works correctly though.

From tmux's default config:
bind-key , command-prompt -I #W "rename-window '%%'"

Byobu's config:
bind-key F8 command-prompt -p (rename-window) "rename-window %%"

I'd suggest either using tmux's version, or surrounding %% in the Byobu version with ''.

I did commit a small change, using the -I "#W" to show the current title.
