I noticed the following bug, using GNU LilyPond 2.4.2 (the Debian
package) Version: 2.4.2-1
with Package: ec-fonts-mftraced Version: 1.0.7-1
Going back to my printed score, I also had it with version 2.3.22

Consider a score with instuments having different key signatures.  One
instrument is in D, the others in C.  The spacing between the two sharps
of the key signature and the first note of the line is too small (not
to say inexistant). This only happens at the beginning of a line where
there is no time signature.  It also seem to happen only when the other
instuments are in C (that is, nothing in the key signature).

Presumably because of that spacing issue, the slurs accross a line break
and finishing on the first note of the next line are ugly. This can
happen for all the instuments, not only the one with something at the

Attached is an example. It's presumably not what you call minimal, but
it presents most of the cases.

Look at mesure 15 in particular, and at the first note of each line for
the bottom 3 instruments in general.

Mesure 42 [clarinet] shows why I think it's more serious than a
typographical issue, since it cannot be determined if the G sharp is an
accidental or part of the key signature.

Why aren't you doing something about it? 
Why is your government doing nothing about it?
