This is tiny bug: horizontal scrolling in edit area made in pixel units, not in chars (?) like other gtk widgets do. So scrolling becomes veeery slow, when using mouse tiltwheel.

I'm using Geany 0.10.2, GTK+ 2.10.6, GLib 2.12.4 on Ubuntu Edgy 6.10.

Version 0.8 (from ubuntu repo) didn't have this issue.

    I'm not sure if I correctly understood your problem.
    I just ran an Ubuntu Edgy ISO and installed Geany 0.8 from universe as well as a current SVN version but I don't see any difference in the scrolling behaviour. Can you explain it in more detail?

    I forgot to mention one thing: text edit area scrolls by pixels only if mouse cursor is inside it. If mouse cursor is over horizontal scrollbar, scroll units are default.
    So, you can reproduce this ONLY if you have mouse with tiltwheel or 2 wheels, touchpad, or, may be also with trackball.
    It must be possible to use Xmodmap, to simulate second wheel on single-wheel mouse.

    Scrolling is not exactly by pixels, looks like it is in characters, but speed is 0.5 character per scroll event.
