TERM check is not working properly

byobu (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: byobu

From within byobu, open a new window. ssh to localhost, or another machine. If that machine launches byobu on login, it should notice that the TERM is a screen term, and *not* launch another byobu instance.

This was working previously, but was broken by the STY fixes. Hence, it is a regression.

  * byobu-launcher: LP: #422155
    - it seems that checking $STY is not totally sufficient for
      determining if we're already in a screen session; additionally
      check that TERM != screen-bce
    - set window title before we attach to an existing session, LP: #422158
  * byobu: LP: #422155
    - test TERM against screen-bce here too
    - checking that $SHELL is executable covers -n too
