Bug Description

Please check the attached screenshot.
The indent size seems to be 3 characters while the default size is definitely 4.

I've solved the problem using the workaround from here:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/141101/monospace-font-is-not-mono-spaced-in-eclipse-why

Reason:
The default font of Geanyis "Monospace".
When it is in bold state as a C/C++ keyword, it becomes wider (wider is wrong).
So we got a messy result at the end of day.

Also:
Gedit is using "Ubuntu Mono".
"Ubuntu Mono" is OK in Geany too.

I have the same problem when using the "Monospace" font in gedit. Other monospaced fonts work as they should.
