in case a hairpin dynamic happens during a line break and ends on the first note after the line break, it is only drawn up to the line break.

Not a bug; it's a feature!  :)

There should be an internal property you can turn on/off to draw the end on the beginning of the next line. I complained about this because IMO they look terribly ugly. I should have documented this property, though... I'll fix the docs later today. Before that happens, check the Internals documentation about Hairpins to see what it is.
(\override Score.Hairpin #'after-line-breaking = ##t) turns on the (one-note) cresc/decresc on the next line.

However, I'm not sure that this behaviour of omitting the short ends of the hairpins as a default is a good idea. With the crescendo, the performer has no way of knowing that it should continue for another note, and the open decrescendo looks awkward too.
