I’m not having problems with this myself on Ubuntu. I think it could 
well be due to the FUSE SFTP layer refreshing your files and clobbering 
the modification times, and Geany getting confused. This is only a guess 
as I haven’t used SFTP mounts lately. Does the same thing happen with 
files on the local disk?

Did you update Ubuntu lately? I’m guessing you would have mentioned it, 
but something else could have changed which causes this behaviour.

That you can do: http://download.geany.org/ has all releases. Geany 
isn’t hard to compile and won’t interfere with anything else in Ubuntu’s 
packaging system (but ensure you uninstall any packaged versions first).

I might try this myself with 1.25 and see if I can reproduce it,.

Usual disclaimer: I am not a Geany developer, just a layman in the Cult 
of Geany.

Best of luck,
