Hi lilypond developpers,

I wanted to type the well-known composition "Für Elise" in lilypond for a 
Unfortunately, the PDF generated by lilypond was damaged (according to evince,
gimp, inkscape)! After some tests, I found what was the problem.
The title was "Lettre à Élise" (translation in French of "Letter for Elise"),
and the character "à" in the title was the origin of the problem! (same problem
in other header fields)
It seems so odd, amazing for me that only this "special" character was the
problem. Indeed, other "special" characters (such as é, É, è, È, ç, Ç, ù, Ù, À
(à uppercase!) etc) works fine!

PS : Sorry for my bad English.

Below is an example of code that generates a damaged pdf :

\version "2.16.2"

   title = "Lettre à Élise"

melody = \relative c' {
   \clef treble \key c \major \time 3/4 \partial 4
   e'8 dis | e dis e b d c | a4. c,8 e a \bar "||"

\score {
   \new Staff \melody

I tested your code with 2.16.1 and 2.17.12 on Ubuntu 10.04

Both versions return a correct pdf.

Could someone test it with 2.16.2 (I don't have this version)?


I tested on my xubuntu 12.04.2 LTS with lilypond 2.14.2 and it works !

The problem occurs (as described in the original mail) on my archlinux using lilypond 2.16.2 (package installed : community/lilypond 2.16.2-1) (changing \version in the .ly file makes nothing). The output of the lilypond command is completely normal, but the generated pdf is damaged.
