You should currently view barchecks as something you place _before_ syllables. 
With this way of viewing it, the barcheck before the third ah is naturally 
aligned to the middle of the second bar.

However, it might be bad to rely on this interpretation, because we may want 
to change it later. I'd recommend you to only place barchecks where the 
melody has notes immediately before and after the barline.

One way to fix behaviour (and make it do what people expect) may be to make 
lyricsto listen to barchecks in the melody, and align those to any matching 
barchecks in the lyrics.
