If you check the warning printouts from LilyPond when processing the
second example, you will notice that you have misspelled the property name!

Otherwise, both of the examples seem to do what I would expect them to do.
I don't understand exactly what you mean by "only if the staff is empty or the
notes are on ledger lines.".

How does the line-position property of the StaffSymbol work correctly? I get it 
set to different positions only if the staff is empty or the notes are on 
ledger lines. Is this behaviour implied? And does the list of the positions 
need a specific order? It obviously takes only as much arguments (positions) as 
there are staff lines defined, is that correct?

code with which I played:

\new Staff \with {
  \override StaffSymbol #' line-positions  = #' ( 18 12 2 0 -2 -4 )
  d d d d
} }

\new Staff \with {
  \override StaffSymbol #' line-position = #' ( 6 3 0 -3 -6 )
  d' e' f' g' c''
} }

In my idea the second example should print wider spaces and set the notes 
somhow off the lines, but it just prints the standard lines 4 2 0 -2 -4. Why is 
this so?
