The first thing I would try is updating X11:

requires OS X 10.5.6, but older version are still available)

The next thing to try (which is how I first got Geany setup on Mac OS X) 
is building Geany as a "native" app using GTK+OSX: 
http://www.gtk-osx.org/ (this project does not require nor use X11)

Hopefully this provides a good starting point, at the least!

I looked over the X11 versions on macosforge.org and they all started with 2.xx, which means intended for Leopard only. I might need to bite the bullet and install Leopard on one of my machines now. I hate to do such things when I am in the middle of a project because there are always glitches as well as learning involved.
As a last desperate grasp at a straw for correcting my current geany installation under Tiger, can you tell me if the geany display is mediated by X11? If so, then I may have filepath problem with my installation as well as or instead of X11 version problems, since my current X11 xterm application does not find geany when I enter "geany" at the xterm command line. Only the OS X application Terminal finds it.
