In figured bass, _ direction indicator does not work (^ and - work)

In figured bass, attaching a text script to a skip (because one has to mark 
tasto solo parts with "t.s.") works, but it is not possible to use the _ 
direction indicator to print it below the staff. ^ and - work fine. Simple 
test case attached.

The problem happens in 2.12 as well as in 2.13.

AFAICS, the problem is that in figured bass, _ is redefined in the parser to 
mean an empty figure, so the parser does not detect it as a direction 
modifier, even if it is used outside of a bass figure, i.e. not inside <...>.
