[Geany-devel] {datetime} & {date} are updated only after config reload

Dear devels
The {datetime} & {date} templates are updated only after reloading the
config. To reproduce insert {datetime} in
~/.config/geany/templates/changelog, reload the config and then in a
blank document do c-menu > insert > changelog. Wait a minute (or an
hour, or a day) and insert again the entry, and you will notice that
Geany always uses the time of the last Tools > Reload config, and not
the current system time. The behaviour can easily make the user insert
the wrong time (or even day or week, when keeping the session alive
using suspend) when compiling logs.

Is this something that could be easily fixed? Thank you

System: Geany 0.20 on Xubuntu 10.04 64bit
