Indeed, this is really a bug in the Debugger plugin.  I submitted a
patch upstream to fix the issue, see

As this is marked Grave (quite correctly) and will lead for
geany-pludins to be dropped from Jessie altogether if not fixed, I
suggest to wait a bit to see what the author answers, and apply a patch
to fix this no matter what -- or drop Debugger from geany-plugins, but
that would be some kind of a regression, especially as a quick and less
intrusive (yet less sensible) fix is possible (see the message in the
above link).
