Re: Transposed Chord name "F flat"

I'm not a developer, but this looks right to me.  In your example you
have a chord which is a diminished step above the tonic of the key. 
When you transpose this down one whole step it remains the same relative
to the key.

f ges

es fes

If you were to do:

\transpose f' dis'

You would likely get 'e' instead of 'fes' and this would be consistent
with the above logic.

Likewise, if you had written a fis chord, it would have come out as an e
chord after your transposition.

Hope this helps.
