comment How do I change the default shell used in Byobu (tmux)?
No problem ;-) It's 1000x more useful when someone asks a good question like this, here in AskUbuntu or StackExchange, so that others can benefit from the answer :-) I just wish I could get all of the people who use IRC and Launchpad Questions over here...

comment Why doesn't ctrl-pgup and ctrl-pgdn change tabs in vim when started in byobu?
Hmm, interesting. I have reproduced this actually. This happens, though, with or without Byobu, if you use GNU Screen or Tmux. It looks like a bug in Screen and Tmux.
