I'm now using arecordmidi to record my puredata midi sessions.
arecordmidi is part of alsa-utils.

arecordmidi -l lists the available port :

Port    Client name                      Port name
 64:0    EMU10K1 MPU-401 (UART)           EMU10K1 MPU-401 (UART)
 72:0    Virtual Raw MIDI 1-0             VirMIDI 1-0
 73:0    Virtual Raw MIDI 1-1             VirMIDI 1-1
 74:0    Virtual Raw MIDI 1-2             VirMIDI 1-2
 75:0    Virtual Raw MIDI 1-3             VirMIDI 1-3
129:1    Pure Data                        Pure Data Midi-Out 1

Here's the commandline I use: arecordmidi --port=129:1 -s -d
