Hi Dan, David,

I tested both codes:

  \context Voice = "V" { c''2 c''2 c''2 c''2 }
  \context Lyrics \lyricsto "V" { Ah __ _ \skip 1 buh. }

  \context Voice = "V" { c''2 c''2 c''2 c''2 }
  \context Lyrics \lyricsto "V" { Ah __ _ __ \skip 1 buh. }

with all versions starting with 2.12.3 up to current master.
Allways the same output.
At least it's not a recent introduced issue.
