This example does not look as good as it did on 2.12 - the layout is much tighter, with 10 systems on the first page, as opposed to 8 under 2.12 - not sure it's an actual bug, though? Using 2.13.30 I get no errors with the compilation.

Hi Joe!

A recent message from  胡海鹏 - Hu Haipeng  pointed out that the changing
staff manually (\change Staff = staffName) do not seem to be well
handled by the page breaking system.
It causes the "couldn't fit music on page" warning and the systems are
"piled up" in the first page.

As a minimal example I just took the "Changing staff manually" snippet
but repeated unfold 64 to show it up.

Could you please have a look at it?

Many thanks in advance.

music = \repeat unfold 64 {
 <e' c'>8
 \change Staff = "down"
 g8 fis g
 \change Staff = "up"
 <g'' c''>8
 \change Staff = "down"
 e8 dis e
 \change Staff = "up"

\new PianoStaff <<
 \new Staff = "up" {
 \new Staff = "down" {
   \clef bass
   % keep staff alive
