Severity: important

Compare for yourself.  Here is http://school.ioffe.ru/~rutsky/eee/a.mid
(49038 bytes)*, and here
(4974132 bytes, I think something about
800K will be enough for comparison if you do not want to downlad the entire
file) is exactly (neglecting the MP3 compression losses) what I got from
timidity with this midi file (I had only lowered it by half tone because
it is arrangement for my song which was intended to be in D major), with
defaultplayback settings (except for the pitch shift) compressed by LAME.  I had
been using timidity from Debian 2.2 stable release at the time,
and it sounded perfectly.  Damn, it was the BEST performance of what I got with
any software MIDI players I've tried (standard media player that comes with
Microsoft Windows [tm] Millenium Edition gave just a funny noise, and
Yamaha OPL3 FM synthesizer built in my soundcard definitely sucks).

Now I'm strongly disappointed with the latest changes...
