  * usr/share/byobu/profiles/dircolors:
    - give executables just a little more pop
    - use a light grey underline for symlinks
    - add whitespace before inline comment
  * usr/share/byobu/profiles/bashrc:
    - Enable Ubuntu-themed dircolors on Ubuntu systems
  * usr/bin/ LP: #1311919
    - ensure that windows.tmux exists; fixes warning with F5
  * usr/bin/ LP: #1311177, #1274720
    - revert r2317 as this is breaking ctrl-a in byobu-screen in a bad way
