#18 Drag and drop for remote locations (feature request 2966770)

interface (8)

This patch should solve feature request 2966770 (https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2966770&group_id=153444&atid=787794), i.e. it should enable opening remote files via drag and drop from Nautilus.

It works for me with Geany 0.20 on Debian stable x64 with Gnome 1:2.30+7 / Nautilus 2.30.1-2squeeze1. I don't know about other configurations.

Let me know if any other information is needed.

    I just noticed that even though it works correctly, after opening a file via drag and drop (be it local or remote), Geany displays "Could not open file (No such file or directory)" in its status bar. The unpatched Geany 0.20 doesn't do that.

    Fixed in Git with a slightly different patch, thanks
