Because actually the dependency is just to use the same gtk runtime
library that geany was built against (i.e building against 2.8, and
running against 2.10 wont work), unfortunately I've built the i386
binary on a outdated pbuilder with gtk 2.8 and gtk 2.10 is now on sid
which makes geany dnd code unhappy.

Yes, because that was the only binary uploaded by me (*coff* binary-less
uploads *coff*..) ;-P

As stated above, if geany is built against gtk2.10 everything would be
fine, at least for now. I found about this problem recently, because of
this upload, and will evaluate better way of handling this in future
versions of the package (i.e. Depends: libgtk >= (2.10), libgtk < (2.11)
Opinions and/or suggestions, are welcome (just move the thread to
-devel in that case).
