[PD] Recognizing USB MIDI interfaces on Pd 0.48.1 (Debian 9.5)

I really don't want to use jack for this.
I simply need to know what I can do so that Pd sees new MIDI interfaces when I 
reload the the midi dialog after connecting a new USB MIDI device.

The way it was on Pd-exended was that Pd would search for MIDI devices when 
when you opened the MIDI dialog "OSS-MIDI" while running Pd.
Now it doesn't do this anymore ...

Pd actually ignores the Media/MIDI settings.
If I set the input to "none" and hit apply it still uses the MIDI input from 
the startup - even though it shows "none" in the MIDI settings.
Please someone tell me that there is a way to do this!

Is there any kind of a command to send to Pd to update the MIDI device list?
I really need to stay compatible with my previous software and operating 
Reloading the patch is not an option.
