I have submitted a patch to CVS (both the main branch and 2.2).
Still I urge you to check the text again. Especially, the paragraph
preceeding the one I changed seems completely wrong to me:

"For example, the following piece contains lots of half, quarter, and
8th notes, the eighth note is followed by 1 note head width (NHW).
The quarter note is followed by 2 NHW, the half by 3 NHW, etc.
@lilypond[fragment,verbatim,relative=1] c2 c4. c8 c4. c8 c4. c8 c8
c8 c4 c4 c4
@end lilypond"

If I understand correctly, the widths should rather involve
NHW*shortest-duration-space*spacing-increment^k, with different
values of k for different durations. Right?

I still don't think it's correct. It first says that
shortest-duration-space is set to 1.2 by default and on the
second line it says that the same property is set to 2.0 by
In the actual implementation, you have
        (shortest-duration-space . 2.0)
        (spacing-increment . 1.2)

Opps. you're right. the first shortest-duration-space should be
spacing-increment. Could you apply a fix ?
BTW, I think I've seen some people (Pedro, Heikki) mention that they
have fixed things in CVS. However, I haven't seen any updates scroll
by when I did

   cvs up

I hope everyone remembers to commit fixes to the repository once
they're made locally.
