How to set default shell for Byobu

I like to have Fish as my default shell in Byobu. I add these lines to my ~/.byobu/.tmux.conf:

set -g default-shell   /usr/bin/fish
set -g default-command /usr/bin/fish

Note that Byobu will set the SHELL environment variable to the above path. That is, even if you want to set SHELL to something else in your shell’s init file, that will be overridden by Byobu.

Tried with: Byobu 5.74 and Ubuntu 14.04
