Of course, that's last week's release.  Our website clearly states,
that bugs should be checked first and then reported against the latest
version.  Please don't bother us with bugs that were already fixed.

So, that's old news.  Why do you think that we released 102 versions
of LilyPond since 1.3.56?

Well, someone didn't update their site for more than a year.  You
should take it up with the appropriate website owner.  Chances are
that, when surfing the web five years from now, you may still stumble
across that very same faulty LilyPond output.

Maybe someone even put it up to build a case against LilyPond; if you
do a websearch you'll find a proprietary software vendor that compares
their software against LilyPond 1.0, a release that's three years old.
Be informed, don't be fooled.
