I'll add them to the bug tracker on Wed night, but I thought I should warn you that abc2ly is not under active development. Even a trivial bug fix in abc2ly might take a year.

I suspected that, but I thought it might be good to report it for the record.

This is obviously of interest to you,

Actually not - I was communicating with some users of ABC. ABC is used heavily when writing folk tunes. LilyPond seems to be able much better rendering, as well producing better MIDI output.

...so you may like to try fixing these bugs yourself --

This is what I thought too: it is better if users of ABC are doing it, if possible. For one thing, they will know what output they want.

I believe that abc2ly is written in python, which is an easy programming language to learn.

This comment helps. It might not be so difficult to fix this.

I will forward your comments.
