Yes, Lilypond wastes 10% of the vertical space on each page. You have 98 left, but lilypond reserves a little less than 20 units for possible rounding errors when calculating the staff spacings (yes, I agree, that's insane!). So lilypond thinks there is only ~80 staff spaces left, while the second system
needs 90.

This came up a while ago on the -devel list:

You might try to comment out (or at least reduce) these 10% of reserved space and see if you run into any staff collisions (which I don't think should
happen, but then I haven't dug deep enought for this staff!).

I've collected some raw data about estimated extents and real ones one
various scores. I still have to study them, maybe a more suitable amount
of reserved space will emerge.
