Dear Neil,

I just tried your suggestion, but it still only seems to affect the first system and nothing else. I even reduced it to four-bar skips, but the second system has far more than that and runs off the page. I can't figure out why it applies to one system, but not others. I'm wondering if the fall-offs or the glissandi are creating problems.

You've got so much going on in the viola parts at this point that the
equivalent of eight 4/4 bars on one line is too much for the paper
size.  I'd suggest changing the \global block to use seven-bar skips.
