Re: Import XML fails with python error [Macport LilyPond with Frescobladi]

I was under some pressure to get this working for a client, who was
unfortunately on Mac OS Catalina. I tried importing xml files with many many
different combinations of Lilypond and Frescobaldi. The only combination I
could get to work was with Frescobaldi 3.1.2 and an "unofficial" build of
Lilypond from this link
(Fresocobaldi 3.1.3 also failed with errors).
That combination "worked", but there were too many spurious details in the
output, such as many "stems up" directives that should not have been there.
In the end we were able to get things working on another computer running
Mojave, with Frescobaldi 3.1.3 and an official build of Lilypond version 2.18.
Later builds also failed to import musicxml files.
In the end that combo seems to work, but completely fails to import lyrics,
with no errors reported.
I'm no Python expert, but I have done a bit of Python programming. I tried
different versions of Python, but I can see that the Lilypond application has a
Python executable built in. So does the system's Python ever come into play,
and if so, why? Does Frescobaldi depend on it? Different versions of python on
the system seemed to have no effect on the output errors.
