Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

1. Launch byobu
2. Split the window (Shift-F2)
3. Send command to all splits (Shift-F9)
4. Type: for x in 1 2 3; do echo $x; done

Expected results:

Both splits show 1 2 3

Actual results:

Both splits show three empty lines, because the $ has been lost somewhere

Reproduced. But I do see that:

Shift-F9: for x in 1 2 3; do echo \$x; done

Works.
