    Jan> Are you saying that abc2ly overrides the bar positioning?  

Yes, because in ABC you aren't supposed to get a bar unless you
explicitly write one.

You can't expect ABC to be written from the point of view of telling
lily what's going on.

In the original, the repeat went back to a partial measure at the
beginning of the piece. 

    Jan> The file contains:

I thought I'd tried that, but I must have put the \bar in the wrong
place.  Thanks.
