Bug Description

Binary package hint: geany

In attachment I have an example file. I added the 'line seperator' character (/x2028) with Bless to make this example, but this character can end up in your files by copy/pasting from some word documents. The first line has this character after 'printing', the second line is the same line without the character.

It's hard to explain how this bug looks exactly, but it makes it hard to edit files. Whatever comes after the character disappears, and shows up only when you select text. If you open the file in gedit, you see how it's supposed to look.

I'm using geany 0.18 on Karmic.
