Here is an update on your bug report, Yvand.

The bug you reported is due to a known problem in Ghostscript. The
Ghostscript team have fixed their software but we had not yet adopted
the fix in Lilypond. For more information, see:


David Kastrup has fixed Lilypond.

We expect your problem to be fixed in the next unstable release of

Bug squad.
