Fingering is not ignored, if you take a look at the following:

\version "2.16.1"
  << {s2} \\ { c''^5 <c''^5> }>>
  << {s2} \\ { c''_5 <c''_5> }>>
  << {s2} \\ { c''-5 <c''-5> }>>
  c''^5 <c''^5>
  c''_5 <c''_5>
  c''-5 <c''-5>

You can see that it is heeded when in \oneVoice mode (the last thre
groups).  It would just appear that the Fingering_engraver (responsible
for fingerings on whole chords and single notes) and the
New_fingering_engraver (responsible for fingerings on notes within
chords) have different priorities regarding heeding the general voice
direction over individual directions.

Should an explicit direction always take precedence?
