I don't have a raspberry pi running debian, and couldn't reproduce
the problem; neither with version 1.0.4 (the one packaged by
debian) nor with the cvs version. Tryied both with a hardware synth
and fluidsynth and no notes stay stuck on.

Do you have acces to other environments to test on, in order to
figure out whether the problem is specific to raspbery-pi or to
linux or to any particular synth?

When you play the file multiple times, are the stuck notes the

FWIW, even if the file contains anomalies, midish is supposed to
fix them, so no notes are supposed to stay stuck on.
