The disk status is checked on keypresses (but only once every 30s no matter
how fast you type :)

This means that we can tell that the user is interacting with Geany and so
stops us popping those dialogs over other apps.  But unfortunately the
keypress code is independent of any window.  It might be possible to check
if the VTE is focussed and hold off the file check.  It would be a little
tricky since the VTE widget may not exist, but with care it could be done.

It just needs "someone" to do it :)
