Thanks. I'm using the timeout to trigger the sending of notes to a
midi subsystem. (This is a generic "unix" system which is being
built by a small number of us across the net ... we are keen to avoid
the "GIMP-effect" and are controlling the code carefully).

If there are any MIDI users/programmers out there in Unix/Linux land
who would like to get involved, even only as testers or contribution of
ideas for the "midi musicians programming API", then please check out:

Thanks again. Should save some grief, even if it was due to total
stupidity on my behalf (this time!).
