Comment #1 on issue 4182 by address@hidden: dynamics on skips confuse cross-staff stems

There is a bunch of discussion in issue 3363 issue 3385 issue 3503 on how cross-staff things work.

'cross-staff' has come to mean that, as staves are stretched across the page. the object changes shape or position relative to its parent staff. Staff-spacing ignores cross-staff objects, trusting those objects to find what room they can after staff-spacing.

Dynamics in the same voice as the note they attach to, if the note has a cross-staff stem, are themselves cross-staff. Dynamics attached to a spacer, as in this example, should probably not be marked cross-staff.

Probably the change to make dynamics align to note-columns (maybe issue 3254 ?) causes the dynamic placement to find the x-extent of the note-column, which sometimes (chords with a second) depends on stem direction. Usually a cross-staff stem will refuse to commit to a direction, but here something went wrong and the stem attachment point was set wrongly.
