Sorry for replying so late!  I was (and actually still am) on vacation.

Your custos problem actually was a font metrics lookup problem that was
introduced in 1.7.29, but fixed only two days later for 1.7.30.

Both is syntactically correct (as with all grob properties): you can
manipulate grob properties either globally in the paper block, e.g. by

  \translator {
    Custos \override #'style = #'mensural

or locally in the \notes section, e.g. by

  \property Staff.Custos \override #'style = #'mensural

(maybe the tutorial/refman should more clearly explain the scope
of as well as the different ways to manipulate grob properties?  The
section "tuning objects" in the reference manual only mentions the local
variant -- Jan/Han-Wen?)

Since usually the style of the custos will not change within a single
piece, you probably will prefer to set it globally, i.e. once in the paper
block for all staves rather than individually for each staff.  Still, both
ways are valid.

Thanks, this is a documentation bug.  I think input/test/
has been superseded by input/regression/, so I just removed the
link from the documentation (in cvs).

This was once again the font metrics lookup problem mentioned above.
