Hi Markus,
could you please contact the author first?  Maybe he can fix it.
I suppose that gmeometric is older than geometry 5.0 and Grzegorz
forgot to adapt it.  AFAIK Grzegorz is still an active TeX programmer,
hence there might be a better solution than a removal.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
