Tell me one application that allows midi and doesn't allow mid.

I think this decision of choosing .midi was the result of an unpractical idealistic approach.

I consider this a bug.

Perhaps you have better luck if you change the "midi" to "mid"
and recompile.

The question that was asked on the French list about also implied that
these files should be typed as .mid by default...
I tried to have a look at the MIDI 1.0 specs to see if there was any
"official" extension, but couldn't find one. Windows users seem to
believe that .mid is more legitimate than .midi, but non-MS users are
used to non-three-letters extensions.
