Yes, that's how I remember the code working.  There was a reason for that,
namely, how we beamed standard groups including a dotted 1/8.  There was a
case where the dotted 1/8 implied that the shortest duration of a note in
the beam was 1/16, so we needed to break a beam.  I don't remember the
details, but I remember using that workaround.

For right now, I suggest that manual beaming is the best workaround for this
problem I can offer.  But perhaps I can get a patch in a day or two.

Yes, it confirmed my memory.  Thanks!
