I want to attach _"G.P." to a rest(s) bar. I understand that I have to
create a silent note to do that.
This works, in principle. However, the rest(s) bar becomes much wider
than a rest(s) bar without text.

In the attached example, bars1-4 is MUCH wider than bars5-8;
equally, bar 9 is wider (but not as much) than bar 10.
Bars 12-16 may show that it is not a consequence of S1*4_"G.P.".

If the text is longer, the width of the subtexted bars becomes
really anomalous.

I think it would be great if this could be generally fixed. However,
pending this, is there a way that the rest(s) bar can be forced to have
its "natural" width?

                % c''1
                \bar "|."
