That music looks like it is entered in a bad order.  In general, the top
voice should come first.  Where it doesn't, you are dealing with an
inversion.  In general, one should avoid flipping things like the slur
and the stems aroud in a temporary inversion in order not to make it
harder to figure out the voice leading.

If you are having a _permanent_ inversion, you should be thinking about
your voicing.
