lilypond-book knows whether it's setting complete lines or only
snippets.  It's obviously done some kind of calculating what length
line I told the geometry package to set in LaTeX.  It's just that it
gets it wrong, and for full lines ends up with text sticking out to
the right of the bounding box.

You can either see this problem as:

     It's getting the length of the staff line right, but then adding
     the stuff to the left of the staff in the wrong place, that is,
     within the margin instead of outside.


     It's getting the length of the staff line wrong, because it's
     failing to take into account the stuff to the left of the staff.

I don't greatly care which problem gets fixed.  Arvid's solution would
fix the first problem.  I don't see why lilypond-book would have to
apply it in the case of lines where it wasn't trying to fill up the
whole LaTeX \textwidth.
