Yep; if you have a song open which is using a particular kit, and you
make changes to the kit, you have to close and re-open the song (after
saving the kit) in order for it to pick up the changes.  This could be
improved to automatically notice such changes; I'll add that to the todo list.

Hmm... interesting.  I will take a look at that soon as I can (have been
on-site all week with a client... doing Windows Server setup, of all
things... blech!).

FWIW, I should point out that you can assign the same shortcut to
multiple instruments; hitting the key repeatedly should cycle through all
of them.
