I think that it would be fine to have a rule added that says "if we're
across a barline, and the scale step is the same, but the accidental is
different, and the slur is two notes long ending on the current note,
display a cautionary accidental in order to avoid confusion with a tie."

But I don't think this is a high priority bug.  It's simple enough to force
the cautionary accidental in this case.
