What I mean is: These final 16ths look pretty good, but they cause the
corresponding 8th notes in the top and bottom staff to be spaced pretty
irregularly. And in effect inacceptably.

As I have to get that score ready ASAP I can't wait for a proper fix (if
it should be considered a bug) but need a workaround that works better
than having to space the notes in all measures manually.
