Laura,

I think this is a bug in 2.5.29 and later. I guess it is because Lilypond
breaks a system when it thinks the linesize in the default staff-size is
reached. It also seems to break a system when an alternative ending is
started or reached, or when an explixit bar (\bar "|" ...) is reached.

I have streamed all my sources, just to check this. I am running lilypond
2.5.29 on mandriva 2005LE on staff-size equal to 14 - this to reduce the
amount of paper it generates - and my lilypond-book-file having no parameters
for lilypond, all it has is the graphicx-package to get it running correctly.

Note to the developers and documenters: Will you please update the section on
lilypond-book because I think it is not completely up to date and/or correct.
I get a ps-file when I do:

%%%%%%%%%%%%
##### :$lilypond-book --format=latex --output=output --psfonts=psfonts liturgie.tex &>liturgie.log ##### :$ cd output
##### :$latex liturgie.tex >>../liturgie.log 2>&1 ##### :$ dvips -o -h liturgie.psfonts liturgie >>../liturgie.log 2>&1
%%%%%%%%%%%%

BTW, dvips yells that the fonts needed are not included into the
ps-fonts-file, allthough output is correct.
