 Lets go back to absolute basics, which file are you editing with
Geany? the pythonbuild.py file or the .ino file? Is the pythonbuild.py
file a tool you are trying to run that processes the .ino file?Yes, 
The pythonbuild.py file is the tool. The file i am working on in Geany is the *.ino file.So, the working dir is based on the *.ino file as that is opened in Geany and the pyfile is not.
