I'm not sure what to do. The first half of the measure does look ugly indeed (see attached), but I can't decide whether it's a bug or not. Trevor, what would you do? (I'm asking you because beaming is kind of
your speciality now, isn't it? ;-)

Not really; Carl developed all the new beaming code.  But if you
really want my opinion I believe this should be classed as an
enhancement, namely to take rests into account when determining
the shortest note in the beaming interval. It should be a switchable
option to preserve the current behaviour and to accommodate both
preferences, as I don't believe there is a generally accepted rule

Bug 638 is related, as solutions to that and this require a different
approach to beaming - one which assesses the duration of notes
(and rests) within a whole bar before selecting the most appropriate
beaming for that bar.
