There may still be some old font files left-over that clean-font
doesn't find if you're unlucky. The command 'kpsewhich'
should tell you where xdvi and dvips finds the bitmapped fonts.

This turns out to be a known problem in some more recent versions 
of Python, the program works well with Python 1.5.2 and 2.2 but not 
with versions 1.6 through 2.1.

Instead of trying to rewrite the regular expression for
lilypond blocks, I found a workaround in an old article of 
the comp.lang.python newsgroup, namely to load the old 
implementation of 're', which is available under the name 'pre'. 

This patch should apply equally well to Lilypond 1.4.12 and 1.5.52.
