Fixed, by replacing g_object_new with bse_object_new, see below.

I tried it, while merging master into wip/soundfont-merge there are the 
following
problems:

 * git diff [ foo.cc ] will show all changes in master, that is a lot
 * it can be workarounded using explicit git diff master [ foo.cc ]
 * also, git status produces a looong list of stuff, due to the number
   of changes in master

also after the merge gitk will show every change in master if you select
the merge commit and look at the history.

So the next thing I tried was reversing it, and create wip/soundfont-merge
as proposed:

 * git diff shows the expected thing (diffs created by soundfont code)
 * git status shows the expected thing (status changes by soundfont code)

after merge gitk will show the soundfont branch history.

So it seems that to git, the merging process is not completely symmetric and
its better to think of it as merging a topic-like branch onto a master-like
branch.

Anyway, you can now pull the branch (produced in this way)

    wip/soundfont-merge

from

    http://space.twc.de/public/git/stwbeast.git

it also contains two additional commits after the merge:

 * the g_object_new triggering assertion problem
 * I also moved the replay network from zintern/ to res/.

so I was able to test that loading soundfonts and playback works.
