Hi Carl!

I'm sorry but I don't totally agree.
Actually I think 2.10.33 output is more correct than the current one.

Of course we are speaking about a "theorical case": textual cresc. are
not supposed to end on the note directly after the one it starts from,
they are usually used to display long progressive crescendos...
(for the record I had to use it as a workaround to
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/lilypond-user/2010-05/msg00171.html ).

But if the input is so I think the best output is to print the textual
cresc even if it overflows the note it is supposed to end on.
At least I consider this better than not printing the "cresc." at all!

I'm not sure I have understood the code-related reason why it is not
displayed now, so I don't know if it is easily feasable to make
LilyPond actually print it.  So if it's not possible right now, of
course the warning is a good idea (hence my previous sentence "The
worst is that it does not even give a warning!").

Thanks for your attention,
