I checked two references in my book shelf, and both say that the dot should be
closest to the note head, so the current implementation seems to be wrong.

Yes, that works (it also solves the slur clash problem). But it's unclear then what the "portato" mark is for. I've never seen it used the way lilypond draws it.

It's entirely possible that I've reversed the sign.  I'd be grateful
for someone to check in a good reference work, and apply the relevant
change in the MF sources (probably swapping a "u" and "d" for the
portato sign.)
