When I wrote my question, I see it coming
If I really appreciate Geany, this is the point which is the more negative, according to me !
YOU are using Scintilla in the back ! not me ! I don't know nothing about Scintilla
I'm using Geany ! not Scintilla nor Scite !

Now, if I'm going to the bug tracking of Scintilla and describe my problem, they will refuse to take it into account as it's not related to Scite ?

I will try anyway, as I would like to have this issue solved, but you may think about it

Highlighting is provided by the Scintilla editing component that is
used by Geany.  You can report the problem at
