This shouldn't be a problem if you set up the overrides correctly,
and as long as there aren't any regression bugs.

I am not sure what is gong on. I used
\time 11/16
\set beatGrouping = #'(2 2 3 2 2)
\set subdivideBeams = ##t
#(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 11 16) 4 16)
#(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 11 16) 7 16)
```
which worked fine in an earlier LilyPond 2.11.* version, but not know. I have experienced similar problems in the past.

```Hans: at the risk of sounding grumpy, did you try compiling my

Yes, I think it was clear from my reply. I mentioned that although
writing in each measure
\unset subdivideBeams
\unset beatLength
does the job, it is a bit cumbersome.

Ah, that's what you meant by "It is though too complicated to wrte
stuff i each measure" [sic].  Sorry.
```
```

Yes. Think of writing a time in 4-time, and having to write that in in every measure. Though a fix, counterintuitive, as the fix belongs to the meter and not the measure.
