I'm not sure I understand that. I've been connecting ALSA sequencer 
clients with the virmidi ports for years. I can send a screenshot of my 
MIDI connections in QJackCtl, with virmidi ports connected to QSynth, 
Jack Rack, the Emu10k1 synth, etc. But I may misunderstand what you're 
telling me.

Been there, tried that, got no joy. :(

Btw, my results with this problem have been verified by another user of 
Demudi and the 2.6.14 kernel. Should I be looking at anything else in 
the system that might cause the trouble ? I'm terribly ignorant about 
the 2.6 kernels...

Well, I can use the MIDI Thru for new work in Demudi.
