using the geany-0.11svn version (BTW great editor) under windows everything works fine, but i found two minor bugs when using the explorer context-menu:

1. when i open a file via the explorer context-menu "Open with Geany" filename longer than 8+3 are displayed like in DOS with XXXXXX~1.pl in the file tab. If I open the same file with the file->open dialog all is fine and long filenames are supported correctly

2. if i have a Perl file starting with

#! /usr/bin/perl -w

both explorer-contextmenu loading and file->open loading is fine and both show context highlightning

if the same file starts with a leading blank:

#! /usr/bin/perl -w

explorer-contextmenu shows no syntax-highlightning while the file->open loading does

Again very cool editor, for any questing pls. contact me under sf at networkisland dot com

Greetings Juergen
