Whiteout for LyricHyphen grobs is seldom used - obviously the hyphen must not whiteout parts of the lyric syllables. But it is a vital feature if mensuration lines are used (old music, Distler, ...)

A proper outline whiteout would be ideal, but it is not implemented ... the current code fails because you need a relatively large whiteout area for a small object. A brute force fix is to increase the number of iterations, but the result would be a pdf with a high percentage of whiteout code.

And there is the case where a long melisma produces a single hyphen event that generates a lot of hyphens that cross a number of mensuration lines. Rectangular or roundedbox whiteout will produce gaps in all mensuration lines crossed, even if there is no collision. That's not acceptable.

Attached is a patch that solves the problem. It passes a full make, and make check does not identify any problem.
