For some reason fluidsynth starts the OSS audio driver rather than the file 
renderer. As if you were calling

fluidsynth_exec/fluidsynth -ni tmp_sf2_file_name tmp_mid_file_name

Make sure your python script doesn't omitt the last two flags. Note that the 
correct calling convention for fluidsynth is

fluidsynth [options] [soundfonts] [midifiles]

so it should be:

fluidsynth -ni -F tmp_wav_file_name -r 44100 tmp_sf2_file_name \

although this shouldn't matter currently. Passing "-a file" is not necessary.

If it still doesn't work, post the output of

fluidsynth -o help | grep audio

Also note that it's not a good idea to use the recent git version, as it might 
be unstable. Prefer stable releases instead.
