Ok, thanks for the report.

Yes, and I can even top that statement:
$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 ABBICCI 1.3.12(0.54/3/2) 2002-07-06 02:16 i686 unknown
$ file example-1.midi
example-1.midi: Standard MIDI data (format 1) using 2 tracks
they *are* sound files, of flavour MIDI to be exact. Am I correct in
assuming that your midi player has a problem with them? What player
are you using, could you try another one?

(In that case, check out lilypond-book, it's lacking documentation
but see e.g.
