This seems to be a bug! I tried an example without \addlyrics,
where the duration of the syllables was specified explicitly
and in that case I still get the stanza even if the lyrics
start with a \skip. However, when using \addlyrics I don't
manage to get any stanza printed.

I wish to name lyric lines for multi-verse vocal music as 1. 2. 3. etc.,
and am using the following simple command sequence:

            \notes <

            \context Staff="1"
             \property Staff.instrument = #'("S 1  ")

           \context Lyrics="1"
             \context LyricsVoice = "Sop1Verse1" {
             \property LyricsVoice . stanza = "1."
             { \wordsBVA }

            \context LyricsVoice = "Sop1Verse2" {
            \property LyricsVoice . stanza = "2."
            { \wordsBVB }


This works perfectly in most cases, but not when a stave starts with a
rest in the first bar. That is, where one, or more, parts start singing
from the second bar onwards.

Just a wild guess: Have you tried to additionally set
               \property LyricsVoice . stz = "1."
According to the docs, this should be the abbreviated form of \property LyricsVoice . stanza = "1."
However, my experience shows that they are different.
