Geany creates a little shell script on the fly to execute the command
and wait for user input. The shel script is very simple, see it
attached to this mail.

The script is created in the same directory as the executable which
should be called and the script deletes itself immediately after
executing, so in general you should never see it (and more importantly
it should not exist anymore after the command is executed).
