Ah, and so in 17/8 it would be :

OK, I have to confess I do something far-fetched to get to this
situation, in the middle of the song it works, but at the beginning,
after my drum header (the measure explaining the mappings) it needs an
extra empty measure. This could be caused by me putting my drum support
in a separate .ly file that I include, and defining the drum header
measure as a sort of macro.
I have attached the two files I use, this should give you a clearer
example of the problem, is the main file and
is the included file.
The fea comments in it are in french, I apologize, but they should not
be relevant, and I tried to keep it clear, the fault line of empty
measure is at line 25 in

Maybe it's a danced march ?
