Thanks, this is definitely a bug. As a workaround, set blank-page-force
and blank-after-score-page-force to zero (the bug, of course, being that
these variables should have no effect unless you are using the
page-turn-breaker).

Yes, thanks, this workaround works for now. Of course, in the longer run that bug should be tackled. Currently plain vanilla lilypond does not do a proper
```job with page breaks.

Cheers,

I can't find this being added to the bug tracker, and there's no example code. Was it ever added? If not, is there example code?
