it's standard behaviour; vertical position of text strings is taken relative

known bug; text scripts generally collide with most other things.

See the section about key signatures for a workaround.

The 21-bar rest is squeezed because it's followed by a key signature change. I
think this is a bug, so I added the bug to our database.

it's supposed to be like that. IIRC there is a way to change it, you could try
browsing e.g. the regression tests.
