Thanks!  This bug has been entered as

Thanks also for your investigation and uploading of examples. In general we only need a short example of the problem, as you can see on the google bug tracker. If you find more bugs, this may save you some time. :)

I refer to the third example in section "6.7.2 Repeat syntax" in the current
LilyPond documentation:

This example starts with an upstep. In the fourth repetition the three "g"
quarter notes are not to be played. The note PLAYED immediately before the first
note ("a") under the "quarta volta" hood is the half note "f", which is played
during beats 3 and 4. Thus that first "a" has to be played on beat 1, and the
bar under the "quarta volta" hood is an ordinary full 4/4 bar, NOT an isolated
upstep. As a consequence the next barline should only appear between the
second-last and the last "a" note.

I modified your example using "unfold" instead of "volta" (a modification that
should only change the typesetting, but not the playing of the music) and get a
correct rendering.

See http://gull.homeunix.org/Documentation/ly-bug-repeat/

r1      literally your example snippet
r2      modification with "unfold"

r1.pdf is wrong
r2.pdf is correct (although maybe musically not too sensible ...)
P.S.: Sorry for typesetting the examples an an octave lower, but that is here

Besides: Thank you for the great software you wrote!
