The scm markup text was revised, so that super and subscripts actually
work as super/supscripts; they use overstrike.  That's probably what
you see.  This means that you must probably use a simple raise and
font-relative-size setting instead of super/sub for all additions.

The good news is, that after this revision, creating scm markup texts
for chord names could be (and has been) simplified _a lot_.  Have a
look at the 1.4.x included chord-name.scm, or maybe even the
lilypond-1.3.149.diff.gz and you'll see what I mean.

Good to see you're back.
