using the \set shapeNoteStyles and the \aikenHeads \sacredHarpHeads give me errors and warnings, even when using the examples from the documentation with 2.5.0 and MacOsX 10.3.7.

error: unknown escaped string: `\aikenHeads'

and with the cross:
Interpreting music...
warning: Can't find property type-check for `shapeNoteStyles' (translation-type?).
Perhaps you made a typing error?
warning: Doing assignment anyway.

i would like to replace the note head of a few singular notes with a cross for a different performance technique (slap etc. on a bass).

btw: is there a standard notation already in place in lilypond for "bartok" pizzes? (circle with a half of a line through it). i couldn't seem to find it right off.
