Yes, this setting asks explicitly for the alla breve time 
signature symbol regardless of the actual time signature.
If you want 'C' style time signatures for 4/4 and 2/2 and
numeric for the rest, do 
   \property Staff.TimeSignature \override #'style = #'C
I think the manual is pretty clear on this subject.

I can't see any difference. Did you use ly2dvi or lilypond + TeX?
Exactly what is too wide? How about dvips and printouts?

Well, that's a hard question. The implementation of Lilypond is 
quite complicated and as you say it keeps changing all the time.
