[Geany] filetype_extensions.conf not being read?

Thanks Matthew, thanks Lex -

clearing the cache worked for the .conf files, but not for
the .h files. Additionally renaming/removing 
/usr/share/geany/filetype_extensions.conf then made everything work. Should
have tested the last measure by itself before, but did not
do it. Anyways, it works now. Thanks a lot! -Paul
