I'm Michael from Vienna and am using Geany for several month (used SciTE

Geany has a lot of features I like. One of the rare nuisances is the
"Find"-dialog-box that rejects to set "Case sensitive" by default. There is an
option in the Geany configuration file for this but it is ignored by Geany.

Today I took a look into the source code and found the reason why. The default
is loaded, but when the checkbox is created there is line of code missing to
actually *use* the default settings.

I'm using version 0.19 of Geany on Gentoo-Linux. Here is my patch:
