Most useful is a GDB backtrace as explained on this page:


Since it's probably a bug in GLib/GIO/GTK+ (Geany doesn't use much 
threads itself, if any), it would also be helpful to have debugging 
symbols installed (packages with -dbg at the end) for those libraries 
before getting the backtrace.

The message you gave might just be a warning and unrelated to the real 
problem, so seeing where in the code it's crashing would be super useful.
