Bug Description

On a fresh install of Byobu (5.77) from trusty, pressing F5 will throw errors until ~/.byobu/windows.tmux is created.

[Impact]
 * Byobu users of the byobu-tmux backend will sometimes press F5 to refresh their status, keybindings, or configurations. Users of the default Byobu package in tmux will receive a very annoying error message about a missing windows.tmux file.
[Test Case]
 * From a new or fresh Trusty installation (desktop or server), drop to a command line, and run 'byobu-tmux'. Press F5. You'll see an error message about windows.tmux missing.
 * Upgrade to the package in trusty-proposed, launch a new byobu-tmux session, and press F5. It should work just fine now.
[Regression Potential]
 * The fix is to simply create the file (like the rest of the byobu configuration files) at launch time at missing, using touch. There is virtually zero regression potential.
[Other Info]
 * None

byobu (5.78-0ubuntu1) utopic; urgency=medium

  * 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/byobu-janitor.in: LP: #1311919
    - ensure that windows.tmux exists; fixes warning with F5
  * usr/bin/byobu-ctrl-a.in: LP: #1311177, #1274720
    - revert r2317 as this is breaking ctrl-a in byobu-screen in a bad way

I reproduced the issue on trusty, and byobu 5.77-0ubuntu1.1 fixed the issue for me. After I upgraded the package, I no longer got the error message when I pressed F5.

---------------
byobu (5.77-0ubuntu1.2) trusty-proposed; urgency=medium

  * usr/bin/byobu-ctrl-a.in: LP: #1274720
    - cherry pick upstream r2338, r2363
    - revert r2317, as this is breaking ctrl-a in byobu-screen in a bad way
      + add bindkey line back, this line is *essential*; there was a
        syntax error in it previously, but removing the line was not
        the correct fix; fix a missing double quote in last upload

  * usr/bin/byobu-janitor.in: LP: #1311919
    - cherry pick upstream r2337
    - ensure that windows.tmux exists; fixes nasty warning with F5
