while engraving a Bach chorale, I stumbled over an overlarge space between a slur and a beam. After a happy hour of trying to boil the problem down to a minimal example, I arrived at:

This leads to the attached image.

The bug (I venture to call it such) first appeared in 2.19.39. (I couldn't do a true bisect on the git repository because for older versions, "make"ing LilyPond aborted with complaints about illegal casts, so I resorted to manually bisecting through the unstable releases - another happy half an hour :-).)

Finally, bisecting between release/2.19.38-1 and release/2.19.39-1 yields:

That's about as much as I can contribute, I guess. Does anybody have an idea what precisely is causing the problem?


I just tested this on current master and on build 2.19.38-1 (the one we released before the one Lukas is using) and there is a difference

See attached

The top image is 2.19.38-1 and the bottom is current master.

I am using Linux (Ubuntu deriv - 18.something (Bionic Beaver?))

I'll open a ticket.

(CC-ing bug too)
