Mmmh, ok, line-breaking is the real issue (although I do not understand what prevents lily to insert additional line breaks in the last two lines). Considering this, then maybe some of the spacing problems in ancient notation (which sometimes seem to be somewhat related to situations similar to that in the example) could be solved by inserting \break commands at proper places? I guess I should investigate further.

As of current CVS, tuning grob SpacingSpanner's properties shortest-duration-space and spacing-increment gives weird results for horizontal spacing. For example, with the below ly file, the first two lines are widely spaced, while the remaining lines are tightly packed.

The real complaint is not the spacing but the line-breaking.

I agree that it's unexpected; what happens is that one cramped line is less "ugly" than the ugliness of all other (slightly stretched) lines added together.
