This displays a barcheck error.  Is it defined whether it should or not?

about lyrics and rests.

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.

Err... should I add this to the bug tracker or not? I don't mind either way; I just want to get this backlog all dealt with, for any value of "dealt with". (only about 10 bug reports to go!)
