Again running geany -c /tmp/new_config can you see if the template list is
available when using the drop down to the left of the open button the the
toolbar (instead of the menu).
In menu->help->debug messages there is an entry listing the system data dir
(probably /usr/share/geany), list whats in the templates/files directory
below that dir, thats where the templates are kept. Each file there should
be an entry in the menu list. If there are no entries there try
uninstalling and re-installing geany (note that the geany in the ubuntu
repositories is fine, I'm running that since my distro Linux Mint 16
Cinnamon is based on ubuntu 13.10)

Ubuntu does the hack in the GTK libraries, not to Geany so it won't help
There are many distros based on ubuntu but with "normal" desktops you could
try. That still gives you the Ubuntu software selection but since they
don't use the hacks there should be less problems. Linux Mint for example
is more popular than the Ubuntu its based on (by some measures).
