Thanks Keith, that worked.  Should I copy this to the bug reporting list?

Annoyingly, LilyPond left-aligns the groups of clashing chords between
different staves.  The code history says the reason was to left-align
   \transpose c c''
  << \new Staff << { f4 g } \\ { g f } >>
     \new Staff { c4 c } >>
This makes force-hshift often useless for making cross-staff chords.

We should file a bug-report, to at least left-align before applying
explicit force-hshifts

For now, you could use a hidden voice
     <<a2 \new Voice{\voiceOne \once \hideNotes a4 }>> a4
