[Geany-devel] Possible infinite loop?

I have no idea why, but for some reason if I have my filetype set to C, 
with my Geany API tags loaded (and the other ones from the Wiki), when I 
typed the following, I get Geany locking up:

	GeanyDocument *doc;
	doc = document_get_current();

Not sure how to even troubleshoot this, but I did run it in gdb and 
killed it during the infinite loop, and it's stuck calling 
`tm_tag.c:tm_tags_find()` over and over again (I put a print statement 
here).  When I kill it, it's always stuck in that function or 
`bsearch()` function which that one calls.  So I think it's something 
that's calling the `tm_tag.c:tm_tags_find()` function in an infinite loop.

I did try and revert to before the most recent changes to the TagManager 
stuff[1] and it seemed to still happen, so I don't think it's related. 
I've disabled all but the Class Build and Split Window plugins. Is it 
possibly something with corrupted tag files or similar?

Otherwise, I'll just chock it up to a random fluke and use this work-around:

	GeanyDocument *doc;
	GeanyFiletype *ft;
	doc = document_get_current();
	ft = doc->file_type;
