this bug is known. We are investigating where it is located. Perhaps
this is a Geany bug or a GTK bug. There are two related bug reports in
GTK's bugzilla:

If you want you can try a possibly workaround. Get this file
http://files.uvena.de/memwarp.tar.bz2 and extract it somewhere, execute
the included make.sh and run Geany the following way:
LD_PRELOAD=/path/to/libmemwarp.so /path/to/geany

This prevents Geany to free allocated memory, so it will use much more
memory as usual. But this makes it stable(probably).
Anyway, all allocated memory will be freed when Geany exits.

I hope, we will find the bug soon, so this annoying crashes will end.
