Hmm. I saw this bug, but the title threw me off. There seem to be a few 
different issues. Looking at it more closely shows that it is the same thing. 

I would suggest that the reference to the \layout{ #(layout-set-staff-size 20) 
construct be deleted from the manual (11.2.1). If it has always been broken, we 
don't want to advertise it too much.

I think I may have noticed one or two other problems that may or may not be 
related. I'll mention one here, and test the others properly tonight.

There seems to be a problem with the #(set-global-staff-size 7) method. In this 
snippet the multi-measure rest doesn't scale correctly:

\version "2.11.32"
#(set-global-staff-size 7)
\relative c''{
  \set Score.skipBars = ##t
  \override MultiMeasureRest #'expand-limit = 1
  a1 | R1*2|
  ragged-right = ##t
