When I have long lines written in hebrew in a file, and I open it with Geany, they become unreadable.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open new file
2. Press a hebrew letter and let it fill the line

Version:
geany 0.21 (built on Mar 19 2012 with GTK 2.24.10, GLib 2.31.20)
Ubuntu 12.04 3.2.0-26-generic x86_64

    When tested in geany 1.22 compiled from source, this bug seemed to be solved. Though I found that the bug still presents when entering the hebrew letter exactly 150 times.
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open new file
    2. Copy and paste the following string:
    (שששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששששש)
    3. By removing or adding letters it displays normal.

    Scintilla, the editing component used by Geany does not fully support RTL languages. There are many artifacts when using them.

    From the Scintilla documentation:

    "Scintilla does not properly support right-to-left languages like Arabic and Hebrew. While text in these languages may appear correct, it is not possible to interact with this text as is normal with other editing components."
