the content of the scribble notebook in the messages window is: Schreiben Sie hier rein, was sie möchten. Sie können es als Notizbuch nutzen.
I suppose this should be translated to english...
All strings are in English in the codebase. Maybe you first ran Geany with a German locale, then changed the locale and restarted it. Geany would then store the German Scribble text as a configuration setting.
hmm could be. but thats still a bug imho...
why shouldn't it take the english default string when I never changed anything in the scribble?

Because it's easy to code that way and IMO it's acceptable.
There is no easy way to determine whether the text was entered by the user and happen to match one of the translations or was actually that default text. This would require specific code for nearly no gain. Moreover this doesn't seem to be any kind of a real issue since if the user ran Geany with a particular language the first time she probably understand that language and then won't have problems to understand what this text means.
