Stuck pedal makes other part stacatto.

I was revisiting a Grieg sonata I worked on quite a few years ago to put pedal markings in it.  The last pedal mark I had was down and until I fixed it the violin part had nothing but short notes, regardless of note lengths and slurs.  A score review showed each staff with a different midi channel (not 10).  Any idea why?

Yeah, the sustain suppresses note off. After a while, the synth exceeds the number of simultaneous tones it can produce, so some must be dropped. Each synth has its own way of handling this.
