I have the same problem with every app sometimes BeOS froze up and only a reset 
possible. Then I looking for an answer : 2 *Endpoint* try to access to the same 
/dev/midi/* device files and (correct me if I'm wrong) if data are read by an 
this data are no more here for the second *endpoint* and that might froze up 
The only solution I see are not run the midi_server but for now, if I do that I 
access to MidiEndpoint....
