## page-breaking favours last page?

Hello all,


Is it just me, or does the new page-breaking algorithm favour the last page?


For example, I've got a violin part that fits nicely on 17 systems across 2 pages. My settings include

%% system settings
ragged-bottom = ##t
ragged-last-bottom = ##t

%% other settings
between-system-space = 1\in

However, the output ends up as:


Page 1: titling, plus 7 systems of music, plus a gap at the bottom big enough for two systems; Page 2: 10 perfectly spaced systems, filling up the entire printable area.


I want the gap to be at the *end* of the piece, not in the middle — and I would assume most scores would be this way.
What settings do I need to use to get this to happen?

Thanks,
Kieren.
