Oh, ok.  That's not what I meant, really.  I wanted to say: it is not
helpful for us to get bug reporst for bugs that have been fixed.

I just wanted to say: we cannot take responsibility for every piece of
LilyPond output that can be found somewhere on the web.  That's beyond
our control.

Ah, ok.  Now I understand why you kept referring to the 1.3.56
version: you thought it was in Mutopia.  That's why there was a
misunderstanding: I *knew* that the file is not in Mutopia, so the
only thing I cared about was whether this bug was fixed in current

Yes, we want to hear of bugs in Mutopia music, but note that most
Mutopia pieces have a maintainer; it would be preferrable if a bug
report would be sent to them first.

I'm sorry; that's very much not how I want you to feel.  Besides,
there are other, much friendlier people on this list; feel welcome.

Yes, I see.  Hopefully you can understand a bit why I didn't find your
comments on 1.3.56 interesting: 1) I knew it was no Mutopia piece and
2) it was not a bug in the latest LilyPond.
