Manfred, the problem in your code is easy to solve. Just replace \lyrics
by \lyricmode. The \lyrics command is supposed to be equivalent to
\new Lyrics \lyricmode, but it seems that the true bug is that \lyrics doesn't
do exactly that but something else.

Graham, I haven't looked at the implementation in any detail, but I wouldn't
be surprised if \drums and \figures has the same flaw, i.e. they don't do
the same as \new but something else, to create the context.

minimal example in english for the first issue

Thanks for trying, but this can still be much smaller. Here's my version of your first bug (hymneNuit1.ly):

\version "2.10.20"
words = \lyrics{
 one two

  \new Voice = "sop" { c1 }
  \new Lyrics \lyricsto "sop" { \words }
  \new Voice = "alt" { c2 c }
  \new Lyrics \lyricsto "alt" { \words }

I've entered this as

Could you try to create a similar example for your second bug?

The reason I'm being so picky is that somebody needs to make a truly minimal example like this. Sure, it only takes me two minutes to create an example like this... but if I have to do it for every bug report, I get completely burned out and fed up with lilypond.
