That works.  Can anyone explain what the difference between:

     \set Score.defaultBarType = ""


        \set Score.defaultBarType = "empty"

is?   I notice the 2.13 documentation page about bar lines,
<http://www.lilypond.org/doc/v2.13/Documentation/notation/bars>, gives
the former as a way to allow a line break where there isn't a bar line,
but doesn't mention the latter.  Is it deprecated? Or is it functionally
different in some way? (Besides leading to this bug.)

Mr. Barenboim recalled observing Mr. Boulez lead Schoenberg’s “Pelleas
und Melisande” with the BBC Symphony in the early 1960s.

“I sat with the score during the rehearsal,” he said. “At the
beginning there is quite a lot of chromaticism, and at a certain point
there was a chord out of tune and Pierre said, ‘No, no, this is sharp,
this is flat.’ I was amazed.

“As a pianist I had no idea how he heard all that. I mean, when I
thought my piano was out of tune, I just called the tuner. So I asked
Pierre how he did it. I was starting to conduct, and I wanted to know
if this was something I could learn.

“Pierre said: ‘You have to have the courage to say what you hear and
think when you conduct. Either the player will correct you and say
it’s not me out of tune, it’s the second oboe, or you will be
right. But in any case you will learn. Don’t put your ego above the
music. Do what you have to do for the sake of the music, and only in
that way will you make progress.’ ”
