"Tiny" is not meant in terms out music output, but rather in terms of LilyPond 
code input. A tiny example should only contain those lilypond commands / notes 
that are absolutely necessary to show the problem.

BTW, trying to strip down a problem to such a tiny example often helps you 
finding the error (if no lilypond bug is involved, but you messed up with the 
code somewhere)... I had that quite a lot, so creating a minimal example is 
not really wasted time, but already helps you track down the problem (and 
helps us developers, because we don't have to do the same thing again).
