thanks for looking into this.

Well, I wouldn’t call that ‘odd’ since it is a very useful effect and
I very often use alignment values other than -1 or 1, which makes it
intuitive to work with. The step from 0.8 to 1 is the same as the step
from 1 to 1.2.
Secondly, LyricText has parent-alignment-X set to '() which, as far
as I can tell, results in inheriting self-alignment-X. Choosing
#RIGHT, for example, means to have the right side of the text align
with the right edge of the note.
That’s unexpected and explains it perfectly. I will set
parent-alignment-X to 0 in my default style sheet.
However, it may be worthwhile opening a ticket like “Unset
parent-alignment-X causes unexpected behaviour” IMO.
