Yesterday I had started a tmux session, but when I logged into the computer today, I cannot find it, i.e. tmux ls cannot find the session.

But when I run top I can see that the following tmux process is running

tmux -u -2 -f /usr/share/byobu/profiles/tmuxrc -S longer_scrollback

longer_scrollback is a name I had used when creating the session with byobu.

Also, weirdly this shows up as a file in the directory listing in which the byobu session was started.

srw-rw---- 1 kg314 kg314    0 May  2 19:13 longer_scrollback=

with a trailing = after my session name. Any idea how to re-attach to this session?
