Thank you for putting it into the tracker.  I feel I ought to
stress that the example I used wasn't meant to be musically
useful or typical, it just shows the layout problem.

A more common real-world example is attached, along with
a stencil workaround and a spacer workaround.

I truly didn't mean to open a second can of worms, but this
example inadvertently reproduced a problem that I see only rarely
with chordname collisions involving long chord markup.  The most
obvious workaround to the collision problem is to add manual line
breaks to tell Lily to break lines sooner than she would

I do think it would be an improvement to have the implementation
of '\set chordChanges = ##f' de-activate the stencil, rather than
just make the chord markup transparent.

The collision problem seems unrelated, but I'm not in a position
to be certain.

I remain at your service in this matter.
