I've never seen this, in fact the opposite! How is lilypond
insisting? Can you make a two or three measure example that shows
what you mean?


Sorry, I missed out what turned out to be the key bit of information -
that the last bar was also the second part of an \alternative at the
end of a repeat which started with a \partial.  I have been shown a
solution off list.  What I had written was:

\alternative {
{ c2. }
{ c1 \bar "|." }
}


I think it's the short first alternative that's throwing it off. Another trick to try is to pad it out - { c2. s4 }. That might be a lot simpler than various tweaks to get it to behave (although it might introduce other problems instead ...).

Cheers,
Wol
