Hi Enrico,

nice - the mouse problem is solved in Gtk 3 for me but I think not so many
users have an HiDPI screen so it's not so important. And if there are some
more important problems with Gtk 3, better to stick with Gtk 2 for now.

Some problems I noticed with the Gtk 3 build:
- any file dialog like File->Open, Project->open, File->Save as etc.
crashes Geany on my machine
- there's a bit strange shadow around the tooltips - see the attached
- the Adwaita theme is just ugly (on any platform). Is there any Windows
native-like theme for Gtk 3 (the one used for Gtk 2 builds is pretty good
in this respect).
