This is a VM message. There's a VM preference that says: open console on
error, and this is what happened.

What sound card are you using?
Both playing a midi file and deleting a morph play sounds.
If there's a problem using any sound related stuff, you should disable
sounds until the problem is resolved (click on desktop, it'll pop a
system menu, help...->edit preferences).

There could've been an answer to this question, you should check:
There's also another archive, but I'll never remember its URL by heart.
It's advantage: it can show one-line per thread (kind of a collapsed
thread view).
