[Ardour-Users] Problem importing *.MID files (was: ardour 3.0 alpha season drawing to an end)

Ardour3b9 refuses to import files with names like "BEGUINE.MID" into
tracks (the canonical file name on DOS floppy disks, more or less a
standard medium for sequencers) even though the file selector gives them
an icon suggesting a music file (two semiquaver notes).

Renaming them into "beguine.midi" will make this work, but I really
think that ardour should recognize the DOS style extensions without
additional prodding.
