I don't understand why you're re-inventing the wheel ... why don't 
you try to write your app using one of the MIDI libs out there which 
already work, such as MidiShare for example?

I can't see any obvious glaring problems with your code, but I'd 
recommend you try to write your app using an already-working MIDI 
library... there's just no point re-inventing a MIDI API for Linux, 
the ones that are there already work perfectly well.
