I'm not sure what's going on here, Werner, but something which might
improve matters would be to use barlines for divisiones instead of
breathing signs: since Joe's fixed the spacing problems associated
with empty barlines, it should be possible to reinstate barAlways =
##t together with timing = ##f for VaticanaStaff.  If the barType
default is set to "", this will allow correct line-breaking while
removing the need to misuse \breathe.

Attached is a quick test of the Ancient Headword using barlines, which
seems much better than the current behaviour.
