The patch looks reasonable (read ahead), though the UI is wrongly
packed, and should better use a GtkEntry now it's single-lined. I fixed

Why not. Though, pattern matching don't work when not searching in
subdirs (this isn't a flaw of your patch, the same happens currently,
need to fix this).

However, I'm not sure to understand why this functionality is this
important for you and your plugin?

I understand that if your plugin makes use of some file patterns, it
then makes sense to show them in the FIF dialog. But Geany don't use
project patterns, and adding such patters to projects seems useless to
me since their only usage is to show them in the FIF dialog... but IMHO
they don't make much sense since they don't mean anything more than an
arbitrary set of patterns stored with the project files (we have pattern
history, isn't that sufficient here?).

So maybe there are good reason, but couldn't simply your plugin provide
the functionality? (though showing them in FIF dialog would probably not
be possible ATM)

I'll review this one later (tomorrow if it goes right).
