I strongly don't believe this has anything todo with the graphics
drivers or even with the used chipsets.

Erm, is it that certain documents get closed or is it just the notebook
tab bar which disappears?

Maybe she accidentally double clicks on a notebook, then Geany hides
'additional widgets' and so the tab bar.

Maybe she is closing the documents accidentally by middle-clicking on
the notebook tabs? But then a message should be in the status window
that a document was closed.
