ssh/byobu screen size

In the meantime I'm pretty happy with my conserver setup and managed to
get ssh going as well.

Why would I go for a simple ssh connection through conserver?

$ consoles
Enter student@vlab2-gateone's password:
 igepv2-1                   up   <none>
 beagle-xm-1                up   <none>
 student@vlab2-armv7a-dev   up   student@console
 student@vlab2-gateone      up   <none>

Like this I can see who is using which machine.

Some mysterious problem I see is related to screen size when I use byobu.

If I ssh to a machine and execute byobu the size of it is full screen,
but as soon as I ssh through conserver the size of byobu is just a
quarter of the screen, which is quite annoying.

I compare the environment variables and they don't indicate any obvious
problem size problem:

< declare -x SSH_CLIENT=" 34830 22"
< declare -x SSH_CONNECTION=" 34830 22"
< declare -x SSH_TTY="/dev/pts/2"
> declare -x SSH_CLIENT=" 34829 22"
> declare -x SSH_CONNECTION=" 34829 22"
> declare -x SSH_TTY="/dev/pts/0"
< declare -x
