I don't. Though, there were other cases where I noticed similar.
Thus, while coding draw-dashed/dotted-line-markup-commands I
implemented the 'full-length-property (#t per default) to ensure the
line never ends with space.
You can ofcourse set it #f to gain space, if desired.
The line-styles defined in C++ , which are used in
OttavaBracket.stencil lack this feature.

All you can do. But tedious and needs readjusting every time layout changes.
