Figured-Bass Bug Lilypond 2.9.18 on Windows

The figured bass bug I sent earlier on with version 2.9.17 remains the same in 2.9.18.

Since I was the sponsor of this feature it would be good if it worked how I had originally commissioned it.

Figures were able to placed above rests but in recent versions these are now ignored. The figured is excepted (ie. lilypond doesn't complain) but there is no figure printed in the output.

I've done some detective work and downloaded again each of the previous lilypond versions before 2.9.18. The last lilypond version that the figured bass work properly was 2.9.13. In version 2.9.14 the figured bass was not working at all. I sent a message to Lilypond User about this version which Mats then forwarded this onto Lilypond Bugs (http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-lilypond/2006-08/msg00044.html). Version 2.9.15 the figured bass was working again except that figures above a rest were ignored.

I hope this helps in tracking down the bug. I have several instrumental scores that I would like to now finish and print but can't until this issue is solved.




\version "2.9.18"

\include "english.ly"

staffCello = \new Staff = "cont" {
\time 4/4
\set Staff.instrument="Cello"
\set Staff.midiInstrument="cello"
\key c \major
\clef bass
\relative c' {
c4 c c c
c4 r c r
} }

basfig = \figuremode {
<6>4 <6> <6> <6>
<6>4 <6> <6> <6>

\score {
\context Staff = "cont" \basfig
