You are not doing anything silly, but the lyrics overlap the start bar even 
with version 2.12.3.  The regtest lyrics-bar.ly seemed the most relevant, so I 
adapted it to create a small example:

\version "2.12.3"
\relative c'' <<
  \new Voice = "a"{
    \override Score.PaperColumn #'keep-inside-line = ##t
    \override Score.NonMusicalPaperColumn #'keep-inside-line = ##t
    b1 b1 b1
  \new Lyrics \with {
    \consists "Bar_engraver"
    \consists "Separating_line_group_engraver"
  } \lyricsto "a" {
    baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaars lengthened if
  \new Lyrics \lyricsto "a" {
    rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrequired for noncollision
  \new Staff {
    b1 b1 b1

I do not know an answer to the next obvious question : How do we tell Lilypond 
to consider the starting bar when spacing long lyric syllables?
