Pretty close, but not quite there yet.

The problem with returning TRUE is that *all* the Geany-handling on
editor-notify is disabled, i.e. also updating of the file-saved
status, updating of the statusbar, etc. That's not so nice.

Now I set a flag, when I show my completion list and set it back to
false when the list disappears. There are apparently two notifications
for this: SCN_AUTOCSELECTION (user makes a selection) and
SCN_AUTOCCANCELLED (user cancels with mouse or keystroke). *But* the
list can apparently also be cancelled by the editor (when typing a
wrong key e.g.). And there seems to be no event for this. So in this
case flag stays set -> no Geany-handling notify handling anymore.
What would be nice is a notification when a user list is shown, but
there is only a notification, when something is selected in a user list
