Probably WINE is ok... On the contrary, UDEV is certainly unable to create a 
seq device.
UDEV don't work fine... too often!
I had a lot of probelm (now resolved) with application SDL-based, WINE, 
Timidity (etc...) thanks to UDEV.

However, if this is your case (too)...

To create seq device manually:
# mknod -m 666 /dev/snd/seq c 116 1

Of course, /dev/snd/hw*  must exist.
If hw not exist, you can create them manually:
# mknod -m 666 /dev/snd/hwC0D0 c 116 4
# mknod -m 666 /dev/snd/hwC0D1 c 116 5

Major=116  is a constant value.
For calculate the other value of hw*-minor:
* template: hwCxDy
* formula: minor=(x*32)+y+4

Timidity is highly recommended. :-)
