            Re: Stability problems
            Cheers for that wisdom, miguel..

            I imagine that most of the crash bugs are related to the fact that the software's version number
            starts with a zero. There is actually a very good midi sequencer already written in gtk (left as an
            excercise for the reader to find it), but until then, muse is looking very promising in my book. It
            certainly works nicely with my hardware (ALSA, SBLive, GEM Equinox pro-88).

            Stability problems
            Editing is very difficult and not very intuitive,
            the piano role editor crashes far too much with
            minimal editing. The QT requirements arn't helping
            much.

            I'd really like to see this written in GTK or
            some other sane toolkit. QT is really not
            working out so far for this app in my opinion.
