Yes, thanks to all!

Hmmm, I don't think it's necessary at all in this case. In Geany, the
communication between two instances is done with Unix Domain Sockets
and this should be in any case faster than an user could recognise any
notification and so IMO there is no need to call
gdk_notify_startup_complete() manually at this point since the
Geany process dies immediately after sending the files.
