Thanks for the reply.

I wouldn't expect the sharp to be displayed in any other case, but would expect 
to see it in this case. If you are correct, then music engraving has an 
ambiguity here.

It's not a great problem as it can be worked around, but I thought I'd 
highlight it in case it's a bug.

As a matter of fact, it's someone else's engraving that I'm trying to work out 
how to play so I tried LP to see how it would engrave the slur.
