#774 crash on second file/open


geany 0.20 crashes every time I try to open the second file. Opening one file works ok, but crashes immediately when pressing the file/open button to try to open a second file.

    I should add that this is on Ubuntu 11.10 with all latest updates.
    Geany 0.20 used to work fine on this system until just 2 days ago..

    Sounds like a GTK issue. Try downgrading your GTK to the version before Geany broke.

    Agreed with ntrel, probably a GTK problem -- unfortunately there are many in the file chooser code. You can also try the latest Geany release, 0.21, which had a rework on that part to workaround some of the problems.
