I set that exact line in LilyPond 2.11.64.  I needed to do some manual
beaming to get the same beaming as in the top line.

The rest glyphs look in Johan's sample look identical to those in the
LilyPond output.

The note spacing in Johan's sample is dramatically different (worse) than in
my LilyPond output.  The staff lines in my LilyPond output are lighter than
those in Johan's sample.  The slurs in my output are lighter than those in
Johan's sample.  The noteheads in my output are heavier than those in
Johan's output, but not as large as those in his Sibelius output.

For your reference, I've attached my LilyPond output.
