Enabling autolaunch then uninstalling byobu prevents logging in a graphical X session

Bug Description

Installing byobu, going to the F9 menu, enabling autolaunching byobu and then removing the byobu package leaves the /etc/profile.d/ script which prevents logging in a GUI session for that user indefinitely in the future. The error looks like this

/etc/gdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...
/etc/gdm/Xsession: 23: .: Can't open /usr/bin/byobu-launch

Then it dumps you back to the login screen.

      + ideally we'd use run-one here, but not yet in main or other distros
    - depend on util-linux, which provides flock
    - drop run-one usage, use flock directly instead

    - fix some lintian warnings and errors
  * usr/lib/byobu/raid: LP: #1006971

      if it exists

    usr/share/man/man1/byobu.1: LP: #938920, #995412

  * usr/lib/byobu/include/constants: LP: #954031
