Greetings again,

since I mostly typeset folk songs, I need a lot of \partial measures (e.g. at the end or at repeats).

I can't understand why LilyPond since 2.13.xx throws warnings that \partial is only allowed at the beginning of a score.

The manual says, I should use a monster like "\set Timing.measurePosition = #(ly:make-moment -4)" instead of a simple "\partial 4".

I like you was initially surprised that \partial are only allowed at the beginning. However I found that this can be avoided by simply moving the repeat sign. Example: Usually fold songs are written like this:
\time 4/4  |:  a8  | ......   |  ... | a2.  :| where 2 partials are needed.
I workaround it by writing it like this
\time 4/4  |  a8  |: ......   |  ... | a2.  a8:| where 1 partial is needed and repeating the first note in the last measure.
