That's a bit of a euphemism.  The main problem is that the part combiner
is really stupid with regard to dealing with note ends (basically it
doesn't): its operation is very much focused on note starts instead.  It
also does not have much of a notion of rests.

More often than not, it's not really a question of which rendering
should be chosen for best results but rather how to give the abysmally
stupid part combiner the right hints for doing a job it should have
"obviously" done by itself in the first place.
