Working around is sensible, but if you are curious to isolate the bug, 
I suspect it requires
1) lyrics far enough from staves that they can slide past the clefs 
2) tight line spacing

\paper {line-width = 9\cm } %% artificially tighten the horizontal space
\score { <<
  \new Staff \new Voice = "duke" {
    \override Score.PaperColumn #'keep-inside-line = ##t
    \override Score.NonMusicalPaperColumn #'keep-inside-line = ##t
    \clef tenor  %%% use a clef that doesn't stick out
    a2. b8 c' |
  \new Lyrics \lyricsto "duke" \lyricmode {
    fords_a_man_of_noble_range_congeni- al em- ploy- ment; Of
  \new Staff {\clef bass <g, g>1 }

I think its a not-so-bad bug, and that \whiteout might be a better solution 
than resolving the collision.
