Well, actually it doesn't. It'll happily start up, but trying to actually
play anything outputs... nothing. With no error message or anything, it
just produces no sound, and AFAICT never actually connects to PulseAudio
(even if I try explicitly setting the ALSA output device to default or
pulse). The command-line fluidsynth is broken the same way. (This shows
another issue with the current situation: some programs claim to support
several APIs, but only one gets actually tested.) Well, at least there's
timidity++ which actually works...
