How should it be that?
The problem is that all corners of the beam are rounded instead of only the two
upper outer corners.
This has nothing to do with rounding errors.

The bug can be enlarged by reducing stemwidth:

\score { \notes
         { \property Staff.Stem \override #'thickness = #.1 [c'8 c' c'] }
         \paper { linewidth = -1 }

I am just still struggling with the new font setup.
Mats is helping me and we are getting close!
