I'm going to go out on a limb and say I think the “fix“ was worse than the
I've got cases where it doesn't even need a barline to degenerate into
crazy spacing!

%% dynamic-span-exhibit-two.ly
\version "2.19.81"
\new StaffGroup  {
  a'16-\tweak DynamicText.X-offset #-1
      -#(make-dynamic-script (markup "mf" #:normal-text #:italic

Could we consider reverting this? I'm really not too fond of having to go
back and verify each and every one of my dynamic marks for *that*.
