I reported it on the sourceforge bug tracker 2-3 weeks ago.

I'll have a look at this but so far I've not had much sucess using CVS with any
package :(

I don't know how to do this. I'm using Mandrake 10.1 as my distro and the
M-Audio midisport 2x2. This all seems to work fine with Rosegarden (using both
ports too).

Unfortunately that's not possible. It's crashing as I send the dump *to*
Sysexxer. It seems to occur as the dump nears completion. I tried increasing the
buffer size but that made no difference.

Just got your e-mails. I will follow up on them later... I have a *big* download
in progress on DialUp and don't want to risk upsetting it!
