HI James,

This elusive defect comes up a lot. See the User archives. I have seen in
on Linux also, when attempting to help people with it in the past. But I
cant see it is worth expending effort on it since it is, simply put, a
stilted way to enter music on lilypond. I am unable to see the necessity
for it. The example is incredibly simple piano music, and this way of
entering the score offers nothing significant or crucial or essential -
except bugs in compilation. Plus, it's also hard to read the code.

Perhaps there should be something in the learning manual that indicates
this is not the best way to enter music. Or something.

If the OP is interested, I can recast his score in what I consider a more
normal way - it would be very little effort, in order to show how to do it.
