I think the second. However, upon trying I found there is a crash (but only when there are open files of another user AND a file located in ~ itself). I'll dig into it.
On a side note, having a file of another user open seems unlikely, as Geany is a poor program for pair programming :-) -- You are receiving this because you are subscribed to this thread.
