[Geany] Geany on Windows and recent GTK versions

Hey all,

since this already came up a few times on IRC, here is a little note
about freezes at startup of Geany with recent GTK/GLib runtime

If you installed a GTK runtime environment which has GTK 2.12.x and
GLib 2.16.x, Geany won't start. It freezes while starting, the process
is still running in idle mode but you won't even see the main window.
This is by some changes in GLib 2.16.x which require to build Geany
differently. The next Windows build of Geany or the next release will
contain these changes and will run again.

In the meantime, just install Geany from the full installer which
contains a GTK runtime environment which is known to work with Geany.
