The corresponding code in lily/lexer.ll which takes care of the BOM hasn't been changed for many years as far as I know.

Hello. When LilyPond for Linux encounters a BOM from files made with
the Windows notepad, it issues an error.

Has this always been the case, or is this a new issue with 2.13.7?

I think it should continue making the PDF anyway, because the file has
an otherwise correct syntax; what do you think?

Yes, definitely.  The BOM is permitted by the UTF-8 spec, so an error
should not be issued.
