I'm not sure this is a bug. Can anyone who has already used such
structures confirm?


(if anyone has ever used it, that is :-)

I tried to get that same feature to work on a piece I was
re-engraving, but I got the same error message and a bunch of
improperly aligned lyrics. I tried the attached snippet and got these
complains from LilyPond:

GNU LilyPond 2.11.49
Processing `test.ly'
test.ly:0: warning: : no \version statement found, please add

\version "2.11.49"

for future compatibility
Interpreting music...
test.ly:8:24: warning: Lyric syllable does not have note. Use
\lyricsto or associatedVoice.
    lyr = \lyricmode {
                       I like my cat! }

This seems like a regression.  It looks OK in the
manual as that example has not been edited recently
and so has not been recompiled recently either.  In
the file for my local doc build it was last compiled
on 27 April 08, and was OK then, probably with 2.11.44.

I'll try to locate the first release which failed.

[replying to my own note]

I'm having difficulty getting old versions to work
properly and can't figure out why at the moment.  Could
someone else try to locate when this example started
