Cannot see the described effect.  However:

Looks like you don't know the difference between a tie and a slur.  I
would strongly suggest you educate yourself about it since otherwise
typesetting will be deficient.  For example, the curvature for a slur is
far too large for ties and the attachment points differ, not to mention
the defective Midi rendition.

Seriously?  It's a long time since I've see \simultaneous { ... } (which
is just long for << >>), and it's pointless including every item in
addition << >> here.  This is just

Notation = <<
  \time 4/4
  \new Voice = "VoiceA" \one
  \new Voice = "VoiceB" \keepWithTag bassnotes \two

and putting \time 4/4 in music _parallel_ to the voices is asking for
trouble.  It will not blow up here, but under quite similar
circumstances (like when the voices themselves contain grace music) it

Now that's redundancy.  Well at least you don't rely on an implicitly
created Staff.  But why use \context instead of \new ?

This resembles a bit a collection of worst or at least weird practices
and I wonder just _where_ you even learnt about them.  I am pretty sure
(or at least hopeful) that LilyPond's documentation would not have
suggested such document structures and even elements for decades.
