[PD] multiport MIDI problems in 0.33-TEST5

So I have this laptop hooked up to a MIDI timepiece AV.  I'm running 
ALSA 0.9-beta3.  The beta4 card-mtpav.c file is the same as the beta3 
one.  I run pd-0.33-TEST5 and see the following.

# pd -midiindev 2 -midioutdev 2 -nosound
Pd: system call timed out
Pd: system call timed out
couldn't open MIDI output device 2
opened 1 MIDI input device(s) and 0 MIDI output device(s).

Any pointers on how to proceed?

I'm willing to believe I've loaded the mtpav driver poorly as well...

It doesn't work with this

# modprobe snd-card-mtpav snd_hwports=0

or this

# modprobe snd-card-mtpav

The parallel port is set to "bi-directional" in BIOS.  I made all the 
other parallel port drivers loadable as modules, and none of them are 
loaded when I use the mtpav.
