may i?

i did not stay long on the released fluidsynth-1.1.0, as you all might
know by now :), but i did, indeed, test whether fluidsynth-dssi had the
same troubles when invited as guest by (yours truly) qtractor hostess.

fyi, fluidsynth-dssi has/had show-stoppers with libfluidsynth-1.0.9. it
is/was fine with 1.0.8 though.

all troubles are/were due to fluidsynth-dssi (de)instantiation under
qtractor, causing it to crash every time a session closes.

fact is, on the few tests i could run on pristine-1.1.0, and surely on
one of the last week's svn revisions, fluidsynth-dssi is way better
behaving now ;)
