Additionally, the Run command behaviour has changed:
it uses something different as working directory as before. In my
"geany" project, I set
_build_/default/geany -v -c ...
as Run command and this was executed in the project's base directory
before, now I get a file not found error, so it is obviously using
something different. After I set %p in the build settings as working
directory it worked, but for consistency with the pre-merge behaviour,
this should be default (for projects).
