If an example doesn't work, then I think it's safe to call it a bug (if
only a bug in the example/documentation).  That said, Lilypond 1.7.x is
the unstable branch -- I suggest you either update to the CVS version
and compile from source (if you're that kind of a guy), or get lilypond
1.6.6 (or is it 1.6.7 ?), the latest stable version.

(to the developers)
We've had a few people with problems with the Mandrke Cooker 1.7.9
rpm... I wonder if the Mandrake guys know that the 1.7.x version is
a development version, rather than a stable version.  Do you think it
might be worth asking them if they know about the stable/unstable thing,
and perhaps suggesting that Mandrake should include Lily 1.6.x rather
than 1.7.x?
