Thank you for this great software!

In version 1.23.1 I (resp. my students who use Geany on Windows) noticed a bug, which was not present in previous versions 1.22 and 0.21.

On Windows the Java compiler must be called by its full path unless this path isn't added to the system environment variables.

To compile the file "%f" I need to call

"C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_40\bin\javac" "%f"

Now Geany 1.23.1 splits this into parts, the command "C:\Program" and consequently compilation fails.

Below I add information and messages which might be helpfull.

Thank you
