I think I have a clue as to the source of this problem.  I did
some investigation, since this is a blocking bug for a project with a
tight deadline in early September.

I looked at the lilypond-book python code, and it does indeed seem to be
setting the width wider for a landscape page than for a portrait page.
However, at some point when lilypond-book is running lilypond, I get the
following warning:

warning: systems run off the page due to improper paper settings,
setting default values

It looks like whatever code writes this warning thinks that no page
should ever be more than about 9 inches wide.  This might be good enough
for my purposes, although I was thinking about using smaller than 1 inch
margins, and certainly there are some purposes for which you would
definitely want minimal margins.

So can someone who understands where that message comes from check
whether there's some inappropriate hard coding of the maximum width of a
page which is too small for a letter paper in landscape?
