Might or might not be related. It's rather annoying how long geany takes 
to load files. Fine for single files, but a session of (say) 50 ones 
takes a while And the situation on my end hasn't improved by buying an 
SSD, so I don't think it's I/O related, so suspect tagmanager.

Best regards.

Best regards
