Hi John, 
Welcome to LilyPond!  I think you're probably right here:

A quick fix is to force the accidental to appear by inserting a "!" as

<<eis!2 gis)>> \bar ":|."

Another possibility is to insert time signatures for each measure so the
accidental signs and automatic beaming happen as you want, but \omit the
time signatures so they do not appear on the staff.  Something like this:

\version "2.18.2"
\relative c''
\clef "treble" \key a \major \time 4/4
%three well-behaved measures snipped

\once \omit Staff.TimeSignature
\time 5/4
<<fis,4 cis'2(>> eis,4) fis2~( \bar "||"

\once \omit Staff.TimeSignature
\time 8/4

\once \omit Staff.TimeSignature
\time 4/4
<<eis2 gis)>> \bar ":|."
