SKY: Game crashes on launch when FluidSynth and no soundfont

Description

Before commit:
https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/commit/858954eec1fa7ebbcea5227ee6dbb24672eec453

games would just exit without a warning if FluidSynth was set as Audio device (Audio Tab) but no soundfont was specified in the Midi tab.

We now have a warning:"FluidSynth requires a 'soundfont' setting. Please specify it in ScummVM GUI on MIDI tab. Music is off"

However at least in the case of SKY engine (Beneath a Steel Sky), that I tested, after the warning is displayed the game shows the debugger console with the error:

ERROR: Can't open midi device. Errorcode: 3!

Exiting the debugger (with "exit" command) exits the game (and ScummVM).

I'm reporting this for Beneath a Steel Sky that I've tested with. It could be an issue with other engines that don't handle this situation.
