It's most likely to be your PDF viewer, since the settings for
barlines haven't changed since 2.4.6.

If I view your PDF using evince, the barlines are still quite thick,
despite the 'hair-thickness override; furthermore, the printout is
also faulty.  On the other hand, using okular, both image and printout
have very faint barlines (and the default appearance with BarLine
overrides removed is fine).

This is caused by the addition of the Bar_engraver to the Lyrics
context, so you need to make these barlines invisible (either by
overriding BarLine #'transparent = ##t or setting whichBar = #"").

The number 2014 is in hexadecimal, so you either need to tell \char
that you're passing a hex value or convert it to decimal:

\char ##x2014

\char #8212
