Just an addition to my previous answer [1]. With current version of
Geany (ordinary, not from SM branch), when you open a new Geany instance
using --new-instance (or -i), you can also pass --no-session (-s) and
the instance won't touch the session. I often use this option myself
(my "workflow" is similar to yours).
