Hi Fan,

Without wishing to sound annoying, this piece is written for harpsichord, and 
crescendo and diminuendo marks do not apply in that context, and Bach never 
used them for harpsichord music. The example you link to is an erroneous modern 
edition. Engraving it as Bach intended would be a better solution.

If you must engrave this, have a read of the Notation Reference under the 
Dynamics section.

The issue you raise is not a bug, but deliberate behaviour:

>From the NR:

 Setting hairpin behavior at bar lines

If the note which ends a hairpin falls on a downbeat, the hairpin stops at the 
bar line immediately preceding. This behavior can be controlled by overriding 
the 'to-barline property.

When you inlcude your snippets, make it easier for people to help you by using 
compilable fragments, like so:

\relative c'' {
  \time 3/4
  a8([\< b] cis[ d] e fis |
  g4)\! fis-. e-.\> |
  fis4-. a,( cis |
  d2.)\! |\break

Also, always say what version of lilypond you are using.
