Well spotted!  In fact there are several other places where the lyric
alignment was wrong.  At the time I posted it it was a work-in-progress
(for Christmas 2017, in fact), but thank you for helping with the final
tweaks :)  For interest, I attach the latest version, hopefully now almost
correct, albeit several messy tweaks!  Can you spot any other improvements?
It will make a useful test as the various improvements to LP which you 
outline below take effect.  One day maybe all the tweaks can be removed.

That would indeed be a great improvement - once it can be made to work!

I'd be happy to make this change as soon it it becomes available.
