I couldn't see the example file in my email (the forwarded email came
through as an inlined binary file).

beatLength only adjusts beaming if there is not an explicit rule for the
time signature.  beatLength is mostly used for beam subdivision, rather than
beam division.

See the Notation Reference for setting automatic beam behavior:

You will need to use the overrideBeamSettings command to set this up.

There is currently a patch in review that will change this functionality.
So if you don't need the score in the next week or two, you might want to
wait until the patch is resolved.
