Sorry about this, I had some old Ubuntu-packaged version of Geany 
installed and Geany was trying to load its plugins instead of my own 

Removed the cruft, recompiled and everything is fine. However, 
--enable-gtk3 doesn’t seem to work on the geany-plugins git. But the 
autogen’d build scripts do pick up on the fact that they are building 
for the installed instance of Geany, which is better. :)

I didn’t mean to imply otherwise :) Unfortunately, Tom Cruise, John 
Travolta and the other celebrity members serve to broaden the appeal of 
the sinister sci-fi cult that is the Church of Emacs, or at least I 
think that’s what I heard...
