missing dots with merge-differently-dotted

rather new to LilyPond and keen to experiment, I started to write
Busonis famous piano transcription of Bachs chaconne in d minor from bwv
1004. Using the printout of Breitkopf & Härtel, I'm currently stuck on
the following:

\version "2.1.15"
\score {
  \notes \relative c' {
    \property Staff.NoteCollision \set #'merge-differently-dotted = ##t
    \time 3/4
    \key d \minor
    f8 g16 a << {bes,8 d g d'16 cis d8 f,} \\ {s8 d4. ~ d4} >>
    << {e16 f g bes} \\ e,4 >> a16 g f e
  \paper {}

The point is that both d's in the first beat are perfectly merged,
but that the dot from the dotted quarter (stem-down voice, d4.) is
missing. [The Breitkopf edition has a dot after the quarter d.]

Is there a way to get the d4. dot while still merging that dotted
quarter's head with the beamed 8ght?


ps: I hope this isn't an FAQ. I'm rather new to LilyPond; however,
a search for `merge-differently-dotted' in the list archive won't hit
any mail with a similar problem.

pps: it seems that dots are printed if the *shorter* note is dotted. At
least.  the example of Bach's cello suite, beat 1, has a dot after the
merged notes.
