Well, I think what you're after is really a weird edge case from the 
perspective of FluidSynth (which underlies QSynth and Fluidsynth-DSSI too.)  
That application's job is basically to emulate something like a Roland Sound 
Canvas in software.  How many stereo outputs would you expect to find on 
something like a Sound Canvas?  Mine only has one, and that's been true for 
every hardware MIDI synth I've ever seen, though I haven't seen them all.

I think FluidSynth's behavior is reasonable, under the circumstances.

If nothing else, you might not believe how refreshing it is for me to be 
coming to the defense of something other than Rosegarden for once.  I don't 
really care what you think of QSynth in the end, because I didn't write any 
of that, and it's not me you're scorning, so scorn away if you really want 
to!  :)
