Then what does the --key feature do?

Oops, sorry. I confess that I wrote the above without actually having a clue.

 If it doesn't decide that note
58 is a bes in F major but an ais in B major, what does it do?

It looks like it _is_ supposed to do that. There's some code in the script that claims to do this, but I'm not certain if it's correct.

Could you construct a minimal example of this problem so I can add it to the bug tracker?
