I think i can express it clearly now....
this my GeanyLexerStyle:

typedef struct GeanyLexerStyle
    gint    foreground;    /**< Foreground text colour, in @c 0xBBGGRR
format. */
    gint    background;    /**< Background text colour, in @c 0xBBGGRR
format. */
    gboolean bold;        /**< Bold. */
    gboolean italic;    /**< Italic. */
    gchar* font_perso;    /**  A font name*/
    gint font_size;

in get_keyfile_style, this struct is filled (as least for c)...
thanks to a gchar** list... pointing to the [styling] sections of

of course at the end of this function, list is free'd....so my pointer
font_perso points to crap outside the func...hence my pb... :D
when I comment out the free statement, thinhs behave logically...

what do you reckon? free the list variable later on?
