Hi Simon,

It's not just you and there is a reason why the output differs:

\voiceTwo sets many, many properties (I know that you know), but the tricky
part is to find out what makes the ligature brackets behave differently.

Solution: It's the stem direction (even if the semibreves don't have stems).

If you override the stem direction, too, the output will be identical:

\version "2.19.82"
  \new Staff {
    \override LigatureBracket.direction = #DOWN
    \override Stem.direction = #DOWN
    \[ c'1 d' \]
  \new Staff {
    \[ c'1 d' \]

If the stems point away from the bracket, the bracket X extent will align to
the noteheads , otherwise, the X extent of the bracket will reach from first
stem to last stem.

Strangely enough, it doesn't play a role whether the noteheads actually have
stems or not, I'd call it a bug...

All the best,
