Yeah, that's why I was saying maybe we should do like we (ideally) do 
with the geany.txt file; make the changes and commit the text changes, 
and then as a separate commit, generate the HTML and commit the noisy 
one. If we did this, at least we could be sure that it won't be the next 
person who edits the file's job to figure out if saving the file will 
break it (like it will at present if anyone tries to edit it with any 
version of Glade).

In my experience, after Glade 3.8(.X) it got *much* worse; very very 
much slower with big files like geany.glade, and crashing so much I had 
to get into the habit of saving after every single action. I think I 
only tested up to 3.10 though, so it might've stabilized since the 
massive GTK3 disruptions in its code base.
