Perhaps this is only a problem of the description. Comparing accidental-tie.ly
and accidental-unbroken-tie-spacing.ly, one could theoretically use the same
music (changing which notes should show accidentals) for both.
If accidental-tie has the second measure on the same system (unbroken), there
is no accidental, which is normal engraving practice.
If accidental-unbroken-tie-spacing has the second measure on a different system
(broken) there is an accidental.
I always understood these two to demonstrate that:
a) an accidental on a tied note is shown after a line break
b) a note tied from a note with an accidental (how's that for getting around
accidentaled?) on the same system (unbroken) does not go wonky with the spacing.
Perhaps the description should just omit the bit about the reminder accidentals.
