if this looks normal to you? Basically, LilyPond is handling the rythm
as if it were two tuplets of sixteenth notes instead of one tuplet of
eighth notes.

\version "2.11.43"

\relative c' {
       \time 1/4

       \times 2/3 { c16 c c8 c}
       \times 2/3 { c8 c16 c c8}
       \times 2/3 { c8 c c16 c}

Hindemith, "ELementary training", says that triplets are (in CPP tradition) tripartite and sextuplets bipartite. And I think tuplets loose any structure from the meter.

Sa assuming this, I think the middle measure would be correct in a sextuplet, but incorrect in a triplet.

But he also notes that these are frequently written rather inconsistently. So I think that tuplets may be written "in one" as well. Then the measure two would be incorrect. If I add the following lines
       \times 2/3 { c16 c c c8.}
       \times 2/3 { c8. c16 c c}
       \times 2/3 { c16 c c c c c}
Then those are typeset "in one".
