I just tried again with the files Laura sent 06/11/2005, just
commenting out the #(set-default-paper-size "letter"), nothing else,
and then the example works perfectly well here with the latest CVS.
(The latest change to lilypond-book that could affect this was done
06/01/2005, i.e. between 2.5.27 and 2.5.28.)

If you still see the problems, please send an example.

If you manually specify the line width using [linewidth=...] or
by explicitly setting it within the .ly code, then I can understand
the problem, since lilypond-book by default makes one .eps file for
each score line, so LaTeX might place several of them on a line.
Maybe it would be a good idea to insert a \newline between each
.eps file, at least if not \betweenLilyPondSystem is defined.

No, I commented it out and still get the problem on 2.5.31.

I got similar results with 2.5.30+ (cvs).

Currently there are a few problems with margins and lilypond-book (I think
that's what causes this problem -- the first line is slightly less than the textwidth, so LaTeX places another staff line next to the first line). If you envelope
your score in a \book{}, then the linewidth is correct (and this problem is
avoided), but the textheight is too big (and the score runs off the bottom
of the page).
