I'm not sure what do you want to achieve, but have you read the GTK docs
on the subject [1] ?  It tells you that you have to set
gtk_notebook_set_tab_detachable(notebook, tab, TRUE) (as you did), and
set the notebook group name (as you did) on *both* source and dest
notebook.  Moreover, gtk_notebook_set_group_name() is a replacement for
gtk_notebook_set_group_id(), no need to use both -- though you should
use gtk_notebook_set_group_id() rather than
gtk_notebook_set_group_name() because the latter is only present in a
GTK version Geany doesn't depend on (2.24).
