This behavior is ugly but expected.  You're requesting that the left
end of the bracket be moved 10 staff-spaces to the right and the right
end be moved 0 ss.

The way to shorten the bracket would be something like:

 \override TupletBracket.shorten-pair = #'(2 . 2)

Maybe there should be a cap on the amount that a bracket can be
shortened to prevent the inversion in your example?  The bracket
either won't shorten any more or that part of it disappears?
