[Geany] Occasional crashes when switching projects

Hi Ronan,

Can you run Geany from a terminal with the --verbose option and see if
there are any messages before it crashes.

Also can you run for a couple of days always closing the open project
then opening the new one and see if it still crashes and if so if it
is in the close or open steps.

We need your help to narrow the problem down because I am running 0.18
and 0.19 on x86-64 and have no trouble swapping projects, but I am
using C, C++, Python so the diff may be the language specific parts.
