I am using byobu with tmux:

byobu version 5.127
tmux 2.8

I have the following function defined in my .bashrc to monitor logs.

function monitor_log()
    watch -n 1 'tail -n 100 /var/log/syslog';

I have the following lines in my windows.tmux

new-session -AD -s 'test';
new-window -n monitor monitor_log;
new-window -n general;

The problem is the byobu is not opening a window named "monitor". From the window numbering, it appears that the window is getting closed abruptly. Is there any way to "log" the byobu/tmux?

Thanks in advance!
