Default MusicXML import does not honour accidentals

You can reproduce this easily by creating an XML with a series of the same note but with different enharmonic spellings (e.g. F# and Gb). When imported into REAPER, they are all rendered the same way.

This is particularly confusing in notation view when an uncommon accidental is the one that makes harmonic sense, but rendered incorrectly (e.g. B# as the leading tone in the key of C# minor, but rendered as C natural). Since MusicXML contains this accidental information, and REAPER supports it too, it should be preserved upon import.

Uh oh, it seems the fix is only partial - while the modified note is corrected, subsequent notes in the measure that are also modified by that same accidental are not. Computers really don't like musical notation.

Can you post an .xml that shows this, ideally a minimal one that only contains the notes needed to show the issue?
