Tell byobu to not set the terminal window title


Set the title of your terminal window by running

echo -ne "\033]0;${HOSTNAME%%.*}\007"

This will set your terminal title to the hostname your are on (without domain part). Add this to your $PROMPT_COMMAND to set it automatically with every command you run.
