That's odd. I seem to remember finding this problem once and fixing it.
Do they look like that on all inputs? They overlap on all the inputs
I've tested it on.

Hmm. That would need to be added as a new style option, I suppose.

I decided to make them end at the start of notes, to be consistent with
the existing code for Ped. *. I also had trouble coding the length of
the line so that it lasted to the end of the note and no further.
Now I think of it, they do mean musically different things - i.e.

b  c  d

you would have a smooth phrase, but without the c and d blending. 

but for 

b  c  d

the sound of the b and c would blend with the d . 

That'll have to be a todo for the 'shorten' code in
