The symptom is after each compile the chord symbols move 'randomly' up and down on the next PDF output. No changes are made to the .ly file, the file is just compiled again and the chord symbols move.

That is an awesome bug. I don't get the complaint about insane min spring distance, but I do get the jumping around. I wouldn't even know how to add this to the tracker. This also happens on 2.13.36, which is where I tested it.

Very odd. Can't reproduce on GNU/Linux, the PDF compiles just fine here.

Can someone else reproduce it?

I compiled it several times (10+) and all of them came out looking the same. Mac OSX 10.4.11 PPC.
