I think the problem is a misprint of yours.

When you say d,s you probably mean ds,
The d,s is interpreted as a d, followed by a spacing note,
that's why you get en extra (invisible) eight note in that 

In general, I recommend to always insert a '|' in the 
input file where you expect to find a bar line. This
bar check will be used in Lilypond to generate a warning
as soon as a bar doesn't match the meter. At least I 
make so many typing mistakes that this is an invaluable
help to quickly spot the mistakes. I know some other people
on the list think it's a waste of typing, though.
