sf2 instrument index

Hey, I posted this to linuxsampler-devel mailing list but got no response, anyone have an idea?
I am having some trouble relating the instrument index that LS uses to the one that FluidSynth (FS) displays.

For instance, for the FluidR3GM.SF2 that comes with FS, FS reads bank 0, program 0 as being "Yamaha Grand Piano" and bank 0, program 127 being "Gunshot". LS reads FluidR3GM.SF2 as having "Gunshot" as instrument index 0 and 125 being "Yamaha Grand Piano". What logic is LS using to determine these indexes?

Just to make this a bit clearer:

LS reads:
0 - "Gunshot"
125 - "Yamaha Grand Piano"

FS reads:
0,0 - "Yamaha Grand Piano"
0,127 - "Gunshot"

How did you load the SF file in LinuxSampler? Didn't you map its MIDI bank/program pair manually with LSCP/QSmpler/Fantasia?
