Strangely, I cannot get this to work. I have the following 
sh>cat "/home/liviu/.config/geany/filedefs/filetypes.common" | grep -i
sh>whitespace_chars  (21739)
sh>cat ... /filedefs/filetypes.common" | grep -i whitespace_chars
sh>(21739) returned '0'

but upon restart Geany still doesn't consider a "." as part of the word,
either for R or for "untitled" files. Also,
filetypes.r is the default one shipped with Geany. I must be doing smth

Should I file a bug report? Regards
