Thanks.  It seems that you're spot-on with respect to the eight rest
inner corner!  However, it seems to me that the added roundings in the
G-clef are overdone?

Yes, I agree.  We took quite some care to add roundings, apparently we
missed some.  It is debatable whether the roundings on the G-clef should
be added to the font, though.
