Hi all,

I'd expect the two scores in the following excerpt to be identical, alas they aren't: Notes splitted into tied notes by the Completion_heads_engraver produce melismata as expected, but don't cause the Lyrics to be left-aligned accordingly. (See the attached output.)

\version "2.19.82"

\paper { ragged-last = ##f }

\score {
  { c'4 c'4 c'4 c'4~ c'4 }
  \addlyrics { This should be left-aligned. __ }

\score {
  { c'4 c'4 c'4 c'2 }
  \addlyrics { This should be left-aligned. __ }
  \layout {
    \context {
      \remove Note_heads_engraver
      \consists Completion_heads_engraver

Unfortunately, this seems to imply that there is no easy/clean way to produce a Mensurstriche layout and a "standard" layout with splitted notes from the same source. In case this is a known (but, in this case, AFAICS undocumented) flaw, or unlikely to have an easy fix: I'd be happy to hear about an workaround for same-source ditions, if someone has one in mind.
