gnome-terminal thinks it's Byobu Terminal

Bug Description

After dist-upgrading from Wily to Xenial, gnome-terminal has a global menu bar entry, and switcher icon of Byobu Terminal. This is regardless of whether I start Terminal via gnome-do, unity (search or sidebar), or Emacs shell buffer typing 'gnome-terminal'. Other than that, I can't tell any difference from "traditional" gnome-terminal.

So this is caused by a bad fix for Bug: #1503418, where byobu thinks it's gnome-terminal. That was a regression introduced in Wily. We need a good fix for both...

This bug was fixed in the package byobu - 5.99-0ubuntu2

byobu (5.99-0ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium

  * debian/patches/revert_desktop_match.patch:
    Revert upstream .desktop changes to match against gnome-terminal-server.
    This causes regressions as the one in bug 1503418. (LP: #1512498)
