[linux-audio-user] aplaymidi problem

Sometimes I like to use aplaymidi to playback MIDI files for recording 
to Ardour or ecasound. Yesterday I noticed that the program was rushing 
the first few milliseconds of playback when used to play a series of files :

    aplaymidi *.mid

The MIDI data stream was directed to an external synth. The problem did 
not occur when using another MIDI player (Seq+ in DOSemu).

Is this a known problem or is it unique to ALSA in the 2.6.18 kernel ?

I'm running 64Studio on AMD64 hardware. More details available if needed.
