New issue 884 by v.villenave: pageBreak resets page-count property

From Chris Snyder:

"According to LNR 4.1.2, the page-count setting sets "The number of pages
to be used for a score." The presence of a \pageBreak command in the score,
however, causes the score to be split into multiple chunks, each having
page-count number of pages. Effectively, the final page count of the score
is page-count*(number of \pageBreak commands present + 1) rather than just

For instance, the following snippet produces a four-pages PDF though
page-count is set to 2:

\version "2.13.6"

\paper {
 page-count = 2

\score {
 \new Staff {
  \repeat unfold 50 { c'1 }
  \repeat unfold 50 { c'1 }

Of course, an easy solution would be to change the documentation of page-count.
