Miditext outputs non-printable note lengths like C5/4 and C7/4. Midi-players have no problem with strange fractions like C248/93 but there is no musical symbol for these - you must either split them into tied notes or simplify them:

so the section D2D17/4C7/4| could be split as D2 D4-D/4C-C3/4 or simplified to D2D4D2.

Another feature of Miditext is that it treats ties across barlines incorrectly - every instance of |- should be replaced by -|
