If anyone's posted an update on this, I've missed it.
I've upgraded the kernel to 4.8.7 and this appears to have fixed
the regressions.  Rosegarden is happy now.

The changelog for 4.8.7 includes the following:

"The recent rewrite of the sequencer time accounting using timespec64
 in the commit [3915bf294652: ALSA: seq_timer: use monotonic times
 internally] introduced a bad regression.  Namely, the time reported
 back doesn't increase but goes back and forth.

  The culprit was obvious: the delta is stored to the result (cur_time =
  delta), instead of adding the delta (cur_time += delta)!

  Let's fix it."

Excellent, I have been curious about trying to run it in FreeBSD,
ALSA of course being the fly in the ointment for that.  It would be
really nice to abstract that dependency away.

The big question for me is this: how is this refactoring work going to
affect MTC synchronisation, i.e. where Rosegarden chases against an
incoming timecode signal?

That's the single most mission-critical feature of Rosegarden for me
and last time I looked at the code the gubbins for slaving to an external
MTC source were spread all across the Alsa-specific code.

It's strange that rg allows two devices connected to the same port, 
 but you can do this directly in the Manage MIDI Devices window.  Feels 
 like a bug, but maybe there are legitimate uses.

Yes.  Daisy-chaining devices has been around since MIDI began.  If you
spend more than about $300 on a synthesizer, chances are you're going to end
up with something that attaches to just a couple of channels.
A minimoog, for example, appears on one channel because it's a monosynth.
Hammond organ: One channel for each manual plus a third for the bass pedals.
The Manikin Memotron: six channels, each one dedicated to a single tape set.

While you could buy a dozen USB interfaces or a couple of expensive 4x4s,
the more realistic scenario is that you're going to chain some of the
synthesizers using the THRU port, so the minimoog, the organ and the 'tron
are all hooked up on the same port, but allocated to different channels,
say ch.1 for the Minimoog, 2-4 for the organ and 6-12 for the 'tron.

Unless you're sending a massive flood of control changes to all of them at once
this usually works pretty well.  Assuming you remember to disable the
automatic channel allocator, of course.

 Is this sufficient in of itself, or do you still think some global option to

 new documents in the age of floating channels?

Cool, I will try and give this a go over the weekend.  Most of my compositions
are actually imported from SONAR as MIDI files, so I'm not sure if this will
have so much effect on my particular setup.

If anyone is curious, this was the song I recorded to test out 12.04.
Aside from the 'Fixed' thing it went very well.  I had meant to post this 
earlier.

Okay, what I think you need to do is go into global settings.
Somewhere inside you will find 'Bank Map' - this will probably be set
to GM2.  Change it to 'Korg' instead, and that should solve the problem.
