MIDI files contain no device information; when a file is imported, its
events are assigned to device number 0 by default. Your midishrc has
no definition of device 0, so file contents are not played. You could
eiher define the missing device:

	dnew 0  "FLUID Synth (fluidsynthmidi)" wo

or remap events from device 0 to device 1, for instance:

g 0				# go to the beginning
sel [mend]			# select to the end
for t in [tlist] {		# for each track:
	ct $t			# make it the current track
	tevmap {any 0} {any 1}	# set all events device 0 -> 1
