Thanks James

I was using 2.11.37 when I reported this problem
I upgraded to  2.12.2 but the problem remains, unfortunately
I am reluctant to use tieUp tieDown because then I will need to specify stem direction as well. These are things LilyPond has been doing fine without my specifying and I'd like to keep it that way. It makes better decisions about stem directions than I do. And it is only this situation when there is more than one voice on the staff where the problem arises.
Is this an acknowledged bug with a chance of a fix?

Here's one measure of music with two voices on the same staff. Top voice has some notes that are tied. Bottom voice is an invisible rest.
The stems on the notes are all going up. This is good.
The ties are upside down however (frowns instead of smiles). This is bad.
What am I doing wrong?

Using a long out-of-date version of LilyPond

Although, you may want to have a look at the \tieUp and \tieDown commands.
