In both of my cases i run geany always on the same monitor, but it's not the
primary monitor (where the desktop lives). In my 2 setups, the desktop lives
on the built-in (laptop) monitors and the external monitors (which are much
bigger :) are the secondary monitors (but where i do all my work).

So the problem might be that i'm always running geany on the
secondary/external monitors.

Again this might be fixed by session management upgrades, but I doubt it.

i recently upgraded from Ubuntu 11.04 to 10.10 (yes, that's an upgrade)
because 11.04 was completely useless for me. For one, the session support
was apparently removed altogether (i will refrain from calling the 11.04
decision-makers horrible names (in public) for the time being).

i didn't know there was a gtk3 yet.

It sounds to me like i'm stuck with this behaviour for the time being. No
big deal - it's only minorly annoying and i would be surprised if this can
be fixed in geany without low-level, possibly non-portable hackery.

But thanks for the feedback, guys,
