I have timidity++ installed.  I'm not sure what's happening here, but it seems 
to me that timidity used to be offered as an application in itself, whereas 
now it seems to be acting as a backend.  Of course I could be way off beam.

I wonder if timidity is what is being used if I open a .mid file in a browser?  
Looking at File Associations, though, mid and x-mid files are just linked to 
Netscape plugin viewer (nsplugin), while midi and x-midi files are linked to 
the same and to kmid.
