It is common typesetting practice to use different stem directions for
different voices, to clarify which note belongs to which voice.

However, if you want the two lines of music to be typeset as a
single voice with chords, then you could just put them into the
same Voice context:

upper = \relative c''{e4 f g e c1}
lower = \relative c'{c4 d e d c1}

 \new Voice <<\upper \lower>>

I'm entering the music with partcombine for now.  The very first bar
shows up a behavior.  I have a b and a g separated by more than an
octave.  I believe they should be on the same stem, as they are on the
printed music I am entering by hand.  But lilypond is giving each their
own stem, the b with an up pointing stem, and the g with a down pointing

Is this proper behavior?
