Hmm, not sure what could be causing that.  I wouldn't be surprised if
there were some bugs with the MIDI implementation, but I'm not familiar
with that particular problem.  Are you saying that it was working at
some point with a version of FluidSynth?  It may be that you would find
the same behavior with any version, since not a lot of changes have
occurred with the MIDI code.

Do you have some example SoundFont and MIDI files you could put
somewhere on the Internet for me to test?

Not sure what to suggest at this point, since I would need to see the
problem in action.  If you do have some example SoundFont/MIDI files
that would help a lot.
