You found a bug in abc2ly; it cannot handle DOS/Windows flavour line
endings.  Try this patch:

+++ abc2ly.py   2004-04-08 10:56:13.000000000 +0200

        select_voice('default', '')
        lineno = 0

or convert your .abc files to UNIX, like so:

    tr -d '\r' < 1.abc > 1-unix.abc

That's interesting.  Like I mentioned in my other post, I'm afraid
abc2ly does not know about K:Zwiefache.  Where did you find that?
