Thanks, it works.  Apparently I've done a mistake somewhere.

What about `staff-padding'?  If I understand the description properly,
it gives the minimum distance of a grob to the staff.  This is even
more useful than `padding' for dynamics.  Unfortunately, I can't make
it work (see below and attached image).
