If the spacing gets too tight and you want it to occupy more rows, you can
also play with the
\override Score.SeparationItem #'padding
setting, see 10.1.8 in the 2.7 manual.

Ok, there's supposed to be a

r \bar "|."

at the end. Either way,there seems no question to me that the default spacing here is unusuable. The passage looks absolutely fine split out on to two lines,
so I'm wondering why lilypond thinks it would be better on just one.

I notice two possible bugs/features here that would need some clarification:

1. What makes me confused is that if you take the original example and
 add some music and a line break before it, then the music is split into
 two lines, even though there's actually more space available then, since
 there is no indentation as on the first line.

\version "2.6.0"
\time 3/4
% If the following line is commented, all the remaining
% music is squeezed together on a single line:
\repeat unfold 5 c2. \break

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 r |

2. It's possible to specify the spacing after bar lines (and lot's of other elements) by setting the space-alist property. However, it seems that there is no way to specify the spacing after a note to the following bar line (there is no space-alist property for notes). This is the spacing that looks ugliest in the example.
