Please check the known issues in the notation reference:


You must put grace skips in all staves when a grace note is at the start of a piece.

When the first notes of a piece are grace notes, if there are other voices, or other staves in the piece, the grace note is set in a separate bar, and then the time signature and key are printed again. I notice the same thing with appoggiatura and accacciatura. I tried to make this example as minimal as i could. 


\version "2.18.2"
global = {
  \key f \minor
  \time 3/4

tenorI = \relative c' {

tenorII = \relative c' {
   \grace {c16  des16} c4 des8 des8 c8

baritone = \relative c {

\score {
  \new ChoirStaff <<
    \new Staff \with {\clef "treble_8"
    } <<
      \new Voice = "tenorI" { \voiceOne \tenorI }
      \new Voice = "tenorII" { \voiceTwo \tenorII }
    \new Staff \with {
    } <<
      \clef bass
      \new Voice = "baritone" { \voiceOne \baritone }
  \layout { }


if I comment out the tenorI voice and the baritone voice the grace note works fine. But if I uncomment either the problem returns.


Any light anyone can cast on this would be much appreciated!
