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

It was working fine on Pd-extended.
Once you opened the midi dialog or sent a pd-message with the settings new
MIDIinterfaces were there.
I was monitoring the /dev/ folder every 2 or 3 seconds to see if midi1, midi2,
midi3 or midi 4 was present or better has changed.
If a change happened I sent the message with the MIDI setup to Pd and the new
devices were there.
e.g. [pd midi-dialog 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 4 4( meaning open input 1,2,3 and 4 and
output 1,2,3 and 4.
(1st 4 digits are inputs, 2nd four digits are outputs, then number of midi ins
and number of midi outs)
Now this doesn't do anything anymore.
