Are you saying that abc2ly overrides the bar positioning?  I don't
think that's a very good idea; it would be much better to tell lily
what's going on.

No, the grace notes do not matter.  The first alternative is only 3
quarters and an eight note long.  That is what 'confuses' lily; she
just goes on counting.  If you don't want that, you'll have to insert
\partial.  I don't think Lily can handle mid- or partial-bar repeats
in a sensible way yet.  Is the attached file what you want?

The file contains:

   \property Score.defaultBarType="empty"

so lily doesn't show bar lines.  If you add a \bar "|" at the end of the
\volta, you get a bar line

        \bar "|"
        } \alternative{{
