not sure what you mean with this - example?

I want to put it right where it is - sincerely, I went through all
combinations and whenever \B or \C follows \A the spacing is incorrect.

I will as soon as I'm convinced what the bug actually is about

but it is a LilyPond command and should be usable.

before finding out that \A was causing the error I tried lots of
constellations and that's also the reason why my 2nd post was so short (only
with \B, omitting \C) - the bug still shows up with the coding you call
*more understandable* (\C)
