Sound and editing don't work right on some files from previous version

Hello, I'm not hearing sound on most .h2song files that I created previously. I was running fedora 14 up until a couple months ago and now am on 16 ($ uname -r 3.2.9-2.fc16.x86_64). I'm not sure of what version of hydrogen I was running on fc14 (I install and maintain via YUM) but now I have 0.9.5.1 running w/ fc16 and alsa (same motherboard as before & no sound card either time) and have a weird bug. Of the approx 20 .h2song files that I created under fc14 + hydrogen, only 2 will produce sound when I open them now (on fc16 + H0.9.5.1). The rest, when played, look normal but there is no sound output. Without closing the program, I can open one of the 2 that do play and hear them, but then going back to the others there is no sound again. Also for the files that don't play, editing notes in pattern editor doesn't work correctly. Mostly, notes can be removed and added, but some others cannot be removed and clicking on them puts a note either before or after them in the bar.. It's not a huge deal to re-program these files (since I can view them OK) but it would be nice to be able to hear which ones are worth keeping...! Also when I export to a wav file the behavior is the same (that is, the 2 files that play will export to a wav and play correctly as a wav, but the rest simply produce a wav file with no sound). Overall I've really had no bugs or anything but fun with this program on fedora (besides this). Thanks in advance for any help, -bg

Hey!

Can you upload one the files that are not working? This would help us with debugging... btw. are you using the lead/lag note property?

OK, I have to admit - I'm an idiot.. I forgot to install the extra drum kits; the tracks that used the default kit only played fine, the rest didn't play at all because there were no files to be played.. :)

Thanks very much for your help regardless!!
