at least in version 2.8.5 of lilypond I found following bug: ties for notes with same pitch are not correct as long as one note (of chord) is octavated. Ties are made, but not for the correct note. (see example code) It seems to me like:
pitch is considered but neither octavation nor note head position.


 <c c'>~<c' c''>
#(set-octavation -1)
 <c c'>~
#(set-octavation 0)
 <c' c''>
#(set-octavation -1)
#(set-octavation 0)

As the saying goes: don't do this. I think it's not really well-defined what should happen when you mix clef changes and/or octavations with ties.

Graham, can you add a note about this in the documentation?

OK, done. Matthias, this example looks good if you use slurs instead of ties.
