Default Midi file BUG?

I have a problem with some midi files.
It plays OK in the windows media player but appears as one BAR blank midi item when importing in Reaper.

Is it a bug? Someone have an idea? I joined a midi file with this problem as Attachement.

All my other midi works ok.

Someone reproduced this with his own configuration so it definitly come from Reaper or something related to the file format.

This is the first time it happens

This is not actually a .mid file, it's a .riff file containing MIDI data. Here is the data converted to a .mid file.

I don't think this is a common file format (I've never seen it before), but if it turns out that files like this are common in the wild, we could add support for them.
