this version from CVS is not working for me.  I'm running KXStudio 
(based on Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS).  When I run this version from the command 
line (konsole) I can send MIDI events to my DR-3.  But the same commands 
from a batch file do not work (no MIDI events is generated - I checked 
with MIDI monitor).  I saw a lot of changes to TTY handling.  That may 
be the issue.
