Give me some credit, man! Of course I've read the manual for Lilypond and for LaTeX. I don't use dvips, I use dvipdf, and the sequence of commands in my script always work. The commands weren't the problem.
The thing is that latex and pdflatex handle included graphics completely different, by default.
The code generated by lilypond-book includes constructs of the form
If you process the file using latex, then this construct will include the EPS file somefilename.eps whereas if you process it using pdflatex, it will include the PDF file somefilename.pdf. This in turn means completely different things, when it comes to font handling in the included
files, for example.

Note also that dvipdf is a shell script that internally first calls dvips and
then ghostscript to convert the resulting postscript file to PDF.


On the other hand, this didn't answer your question on why it worked with some releases and not
with others. ;-(
