I agree it's not very nice, on the other hand I think it's the
smallest patch that achieves what I need. Modifying
msgwin_parse_grep_line() isn't enough, you'd have to modify
parse_file_line() and be _very_ careful because you could screw up
parse_compiler_error_line() which uses this function too with
different parameters.

Precisely, otherwise the error appears in status bar every time you
click a message without a filename in it.

Exactly. When I search for a file with the given name, then the result like


looks a little strange (I had to put the current cursor's position
there if the file was opened, otherwise the buffer scrolled to a
different place). So even though there's a workaround, I'd prefer to
have it handled in geany.
