I dont see anything there that it will use its Ui to play Midi files. However it does say:
" * Plays MIDI files without any external MIDI instruments at all"
when you click on one of the links it will bring up a dialog box askin gyou to "open with" and "save" Can you than open it with Timidity.
Yes there is a bug filed on the "open with" since it defaults to you $HOME dir.
Also as stated above did you try go to >edit>preferences>applications and select what to use to play it?
