I have the same problems, but use \tempo anyway (because it's "more correct", 
conceptually) and tweak the output manually.

There are at least three other major problems with \tempo that I would love to 
have fixed:
    1. It doesn't recognize break-align (e.g., it cannot be automatically lined 
up with a time signature);
    2. There is no way to globally set the font characteristics.
    3. Collisions between consecutive MetronomeMarks (with small measures 
between them) is not handled gracefully.

The acceptable answer is that one of us has to learn how to fix Lilypond so 
that MetronomeMark behaves as expected, or wait until one of the current 
developers gets around to it.
