You should have also a "comment_single" setting, which for C++ should be
set to "//", and it should then normally work like you want.  BTW, this
is the default, at least for Geany 1.23.  Which version do you use?

Checking the log tells me the separate single-line comment support was
added in 0.21, but that a bug leading to use single-line comments for
multiline blocks was fixed in 1.23.

This has nothing to do with your issue, it's only used to chose the
coloring for syntax highlighting.

Which indentation?
