Thanks, added the bug as percent-repeat-harakiri.ly

A workaround is to add invisible stuff to the percent repeated bars, something 

  \repeat percent 10 {c4 d e f }
  \new Voice {\hideNotes \repeat unfold 10 c1}

Not that I know of. I'm quite sure it's possible, though, through some deep 
Scheme hacking.

I can't find a workaround either. The bug has been added as 
percent-repeat-grace.ly. Thanks!
