Post everything on the list, but not this one. Send documentation
suggestions to address@hidden and apparent bugs to
address@hidden . In my experience, apparent bugs are usually
not true bugs. It's weird, I know.

You can read archives here:

It's listed here:

But I suppose we should add some "Known issues and warnings" to the
Notation Reference (I couldn't find any relating to this).

Just to be clear, the workaround for you (don't forget proper
indentation) would be this:

\relative c' {
  \key c \minor
  \grace ais8
  \partial 8
  c d ees f g aes bes c

I'm moving this to lilypond-devel, which is a better list for this
topic. You'll probably want to subscribe to both lilypond-devel and
bug-lilypond if you haven't already.

Thanks for your contribution.
