Bug Description

I use fresh-installed Xubuntu 14.04 with Japanese language environment.


- byobu: 5.77-0ubuntu1
- screen: 4.1.0~20120320gitdb59704-9


 $ byobu-select-backend ## use screen
 $ byobu
 Then, hit F9


The menu is rendered incorrectly (see the attached image)


- tmux backend is fine.
- The problem exists both with xfce4-terminal and xterm.
- Maybe it's because of Japanese characters.
- I did not have this problem in Xubuntu 12.04.

When I run

 $ LANG=C byobu

and hit F9, the menu is fine, but menu items are somewhat encoded. (see the attached image)
