I was able to use 2.1.x almost right away. I guess waiting 3 subversions wasn't enough.

If I were you, I would revert back to 2.2.2 for any serious typesetting
and wait for 2.3.x to stabilize. If you want to help the developers
by pointing out errors, it's probably easier to start from smaller
examples first.

You talk about messy parameter settings. I would probably try to
comment out as many of the property settings as possible and start
all over from the default layout. Then, you can add some settings
at a time if necessary.

I just made the jump from 2.2.2 to 2.3.3.

Before, my orchestral score was looking fine on PDF. As many staves
that could fit on one page without feeling cramped, were put on one
page. With 2.3, there is an EXTREME case of staves overlapping. The way
it looks now, the upper quarter of page 1 is cut off, page 2 overlaps
the last half of page 1, and so on.

My parameter settings are a mess -- it was just luck I got it to look
right in < 2.2, probably -- so it's probably my fault. Does anyone have
any suggestions as to what I should tweak first to get the score back
to normal?
