Ah, o.k. 
fluid_synth_bank_select will accept bank numbers in the range 
0-16383 (not documented, just from the source). That _is_ kind of
messy since there seems to be _four_ domains for bank numbers:
 - unsigned int (in set_bank_offset)

 - 0-16383 in fluid_synth_bank_select

 - short in fluid_event_bank_select and 

 - int in fluid_synth_get_bank_offset

Oh well, another wart on the hog :-)
