I think this bug is still present if I understand it correctly. The 
attached file causes indentation guides to be shown on the blank line 
that has no indentation at all.

I don't often use Geany for opening files from the command line and

so I can't really provide a worthwhile opinion here.

Thanks for tracking down those lingering bug reports!
