If you replace the spacing note with an ordinary note, you see better what happens. If you then keep playing around with the example, you will notice that it's the "*0" that's the culprit. If you use s4^"..." instead, the result looks much better. Of course, you don't get this artificially large horizontal spacing in any real world score and as soon as the spacing gets more tight, you won't notice the
```problem even with your original approach.

I'm sure you know about the alternative to use text marks attached to the
bar lines.

In 2.11.37 it seems that trying to get left aligned text over multimeasure rests only works under some conditions. In the following example only the first case is left aligned. This is what I am observing in my real examples.
```
\version "2.11.37"

\new Staff
{
\set Score.skipBars = ##t
<< s4*0^"first" R1*2 >>
<< s4*0^"second" R1*2 >>
}
