I think you are on the wrong track here.  If this was merely a problem
of "cramped spacing", all systems should be suffering about equally.

One thing that may happen is that there is no space reserved for
ChordNames.  However, that is not all.  The worst lines are below
multiple lines of lyrics: it would appear that the totals of those lines
are overestimated with regard to positioning the ChordNames in the
system below them, pushing those much further down than the lyrics
height would have warranted.

If I had to take a guess, the skyline code at some point of time might
have overestimated everything, and then you added some "compensation" or
scaling in the wrong place that fixed the simplest case of compound
systems but did not refit ChordNames.

Or you have some calculation order where ChordNames are first fixed in
relation to the _above_ system based on some pure estimate, but then
everything gets compressed according to unpure calculations.
