MIDI volume not reset after exit (Windows)

This'll probably be difficult to fix, but at least under Windows, you set MIDI volume to max when a MIDI music starts being played, and then set it to zero when it stops. Unfortunately, it stays zero when the program is exited.

It can use various types for music and sounds. Alan's BD2K3 uses MIDIs.

Argh, this does sound nasty.

So it seems to completely override the system or user settings?! :-(

Which means I would have to read the current volume (if this is possible with SDL) and re-set it when the program exits (because setting it to MAX won't be a good solution either, although maybe better than having it at MIN volume)...
