Ah, silly me :-( Yes, of course. The text events could only be 
useful when playing a .mid file, but never in real-time midi. 
It really is only a SysEx that can handle an arbitrary-length 
text-string in real-time .... 
These are the events that ALSAMIDI (ie: realtime) recognises: 
including SND_SEQ_EVENT_SYSEX but no text-events. 
Sorry 'bout that,
