I've never heard of it. One thing you could try is to watch the files
using `inotifywait` (in `inotify-tools` package) like:
$ inotifywait -m /path/to/a/file/in/question
And see if it reports changes. Another way (since I don't think Geany
uses inotify by default but rather just stat's the file), would be
$ watch -n 1 stat -c '%y' /path/to/a/file/in/question
And see if the timestamp changes when you do whatever stuff to the
files. If it does change, it's expected that Geany would prompt you
since the file actually changed (it would be a bug in your filesystem).
