This is expected, the global menu thing is a dynamic hack, it doesn't
need modifying the source of the application, so building our vanilla
copy ain't going to change this.

This is what Lex talked about: at runtime, Unity tries to steal
application's menu, and apparently have a hard time doing it for our
dynamic templates menu.  We already saw such problems, but I though it
was fixed in this menu thingie…

Anyway, you should be able to disable the menu stealing, I think with this:


(set the environment variable UBUNTU_MENUPROXY to be empty, and run geany)

I'm not positive it's the solution because I don't have a Ubuntu box
with Unity at hand, but that looks like what the Internets say and wht I

If this works, then you may report a bug to Ubuntu so that they either
fix their global menu thing, or add Geany to a blacklist for this.
