I use byobu 5.77 with tmux 1.8-5 on Ubuntu 14.04.

When I start a new byobu instance, my TERM variable is not set. Thus, I added export TERM=screen-256color to ~/.byoburc. It works fine.

But when I start a new named sessions, i.e. byobu new -s <session_name>, the TERM variable is once again unset. What is going on and how to fix it (so that the TERM variable would be set in named sessions too)?
