Well, there is of course the bug report in the issue title,
but Federico's example and log seem to point more to the bug reported
in another thread here, now issue 4231

The tracker issue from 2011 was linked in the email linked above.

A new regtest had triggered a previously-tracked issue, and somebody
with and email starting 'dak' complained on the bug-lilypond. 
I pointed to the tracker item, and suggested to change the regtest.
Then a message from 'dak' posted to the tracker item complained that
the error in the regtest hindered regression testing.  So I put the
known work-around into the offending regtest, and somebody with the 
email staring 'dak' reverted the work-around.

Let's see what happens this time.
