Out of curiosity, if you are affected by this bug, what does the command

'find -not -user `whoami`'

list, when executed from your homedir?

Just switch to other theme for GTK+ based application, seems to be a problem with the default gtk-oxygen bundle with KDE 4.6.

Nicolas, this is most likely the cause. With default gtk theme geany works fine. Is there already a bug for that?

@sergk: Not in launchpad, i see this in the geany sourceforge forum right here:
