Spacing bug

The following file tries to squeeze onto one line when it clearly doesn't fit (the double barline at the end is cut off, for a start):

\time 3/4
 c8 d e f g a
 c, d16 d e8 f g a
 c, d e16 e f8 g a
 c, d e f16 f g8 a
 c,8. d16 e8 f g8. a16
 r8 d, e f g a
 c, d e f g r
 r d e r f g
 c, r e r g

I was actually creating this file to see what beaming policies lilypond uses - to me the 2nd last bar here looks a bit odd for 3/4 (it looks like a 6/8 bar), but to be honest, I'm not sure how it would automatically determine a better configuration. The 6th bar isn't perhaps ideal either, I suspect most publishers would prefer not to beam the f to the g. I assume the rule it's using is that quavers are beamed over beat (crotchet) boundaries - shorter notes are only beamed within each beat. Probably reasonable enough for 99% of cases anyway.

Actually one other thing - why is the duration number necessary when using a dot? I would expect to be able to type "c,. d16 e8 f g. a16" for the 5th bar here, but it doesn't work. The documentation doesn't suggest that the duration number is required, but all the examples include it.
