The current output looks ok to me. You can recover the 2.12 output by increasing the page-spacing-weight parameter, but I think the current output still captures the point of the test.

"Horizontally stretched" means that the ideal horizontal spacing would be to use 1 system per page, but lilypond will use two on the first page because it strikes a better balance between vertical and horizontal spacing.

The remark about the raggedness of the second page is important because ragged spacing affects the page breaking as well as the final page layout. Were the last page not ragged, lilypond would try to place more systems on it so that the page would be better filled (you can check that I'm not lying by changing ragged-last-bottom to ##t.)

Compiling this with 2.12.3 and 2.13.45 yields (to my eye) rather different results. I personally cannot tell if the systems are horizontally stretched or not. They appear to be centered. Or should this illustrate that only the systems on the first page are vertically stretched? Regardless, in 2.13, only one system is on the second page, so I don't think any ragged settings will be obviously apparent. Am I completely off here? Can someone explain what I should be seeing, and then we can work out if it is displaying correctly.
