This causes generally an error message like:

(null): Warning: /tmp/test.php:24: null expansion of name pattern "\1"

The leading "(null)" is caused in Geany we don't set the applicaton
name in ctags.c. It is just initialised with NULL. This is generally
not a problem except for Windows where printf("%s", NULL) results in a
segfault. I just changed this in SVN r2531.
But this is yet another step to find the real problem your crashes.

Could you send the output of Geany when started on a console?
