I think Geany didn't like when I deleted the line FILE_NAME_X=, and it created a new geany.conf for me... scribble_text is empty, but I wonder why was my previous session still restored.
Removing one of the FILE_NAME_X lines will stop session loading at the file numbered before, Geany stops at the first missing number, files numbered after won't load, but that shouldn't affect scribble_text.
If geany.conf is broken, maybe locked or something as a result of killing Geany, then a fresh copy is generated, but that wouldn't load your session.
Some "wise after the fact" lessons:
1. don't hand edit config files unless you know what you are doing.
2. when you do, keep a backup (oh, of course, you can restore geany.conf from your daily backup can't you :)
3. open Geany with --no-session to avoid loading dud files, but that does mean manually re-loading the rest
4. as I found out recently, when loading large files, turn line wrapping off (250Mb file took 3s vs 6 minutes)
