This is pretty anecdotal I can't say anything for sure, but I'm just
coming off a long stint of coding in which Geany was open on my machine
all the time and I'd get system hangs maybe once or twice per day --
once in six or eight hours. Usually the computer would freeze except
that the mouse would continue to move, but not have any effect.
Sometimes the video would go crazy and create a sort of pixilization of
the screen that looked like those squares you can point your smartphone
at and order a pizza. I really had/have no idea who or what was to
blame, however I've finished coding for the time being and after a week
with no use of Geany, I've had not a single hang. Also, after hangs I'd
often see a file like: '.goutputstream-4BLCY1' which I know is created
by Geany and not erased in case of some screwup, so it sorta points the
finger at Geany. Dunno, is there some way of nailing this down? Some
sort of diagnostic or error log or some such that might help? I've
reinstalled with no improvement, but that's the Debian repo version.
Maybe an update? Pretty thin evidence I know but it begins to look like
Geany is misbehaving. I almost wish it happened more than once or twice
per day because that would make diagnosis easier. Thots?
