Ahh, I got it backasswards, it deletes to do because by default you
have a Haskell specific "do" snippet that pastes nothing to override a
default do snippet, so you have to set it to paste "do<tab>", see

Maybe that would be a good change to the default snippets file, I
guess you Haskell programmers will have to decide that.

Or the default snippets should not be language specific :(

Terminology mismatch, indentation in Geany terminology is something
that goes at the beginning of a line, not in the middle of a line,
<ctrl>i adds whitespace at the beginning of the line.
