Bug Description

I connect to an Ubuntu 10.04.3 server using SSH from within nautilus. When I open a text file with geany, modify it and save it, then the file on the server is set to zero file size, i.e. it is completly empty. When I delete this empty file, and save it from Geany using the 'save as' function, the file gets written correctly.

When the file is opened using Gedit, everything works correctly.
