With LinVst Sforzando doesn't update it's UI after loading an instrument.

Is it an issue with LinVst or maybe I have to configure something?
I tried it out with some Kawai samples and some others.

The UI instrument display seems to update when instruments are loaded from the menu.

It's probably a Wine thing but I'll see if I can do anything.

The standalone version loads external graphic files for it's GUI and the vst would have the graphic files built in, so it looks like something Wine is doing with the vst.

The vst depends on OpenGL/D3D as well, and that can cause problems for older video hardware that doesn't have newer OpenGL (D3D) capabilities.
