Is that a problem? If so, how? Software that uses your MIDI-interface
should just work with dsp1, too.

That, of course, *is* a problem.

It would be helpful if you could provide more information, such as:

* what type of MIDI-interface you have (the output of 'lsusb' would be
* what kernel you're running
* what architecture you're running this on.

My guess is that it's either the kernel or udev which is doing something
wrong here. I'm filing this as a bug on udev for the time being; I'm
sure Marco will properly reassign this bug once you've provided the
extra information.

Also note that there is a package "generic" which was specifically
created for cases like these, where you're not sure which package is
responsible for the bug. You may want to file a bug against generic next

(Please wait with providing feedback until you know the bug number, and
then send it to <number>@bugs.debian.org).
