I've been working on a full orchestral score for a while and have begun running into a perplexing problem. To save compiling time I usually use the
\property Score.skipTypesetting = ##t

feature, just typesetting the part I'm currently working on and every once in a great while commenting the "skip typesetting" instruction so that I can see how the whole thing looks so far. Until yesterday I never had a problem with this, but after the score reached a certain length I started to get this error message at the very end of the compile:

paper output to `rococo-score.tex'...

I can skip all but the very end or very beginning of the score and get a good compile with normal postscript output, but doing the entire thing makes latex choke. Any help gratefully appreciated. I'm attaching the two files zipped together, in case that helps.
