Try engrave this ly code:

\version "2.20.0"
>/\header {/
>/title = \markup \column {/
>/\line { "Minuet" }/
>/\line { "" }/
>/\line { "" }/
>/subtitle = "A study in accent and in the correct timing of half beats"/

Sometimes a ly code converted from music sheet software (like Finale), and
their composers prone to typeset casually like this. It's better to
keep accordance with the original appearance.

I cannot reproduce the original behavior where empty strings took space with
a 2.20 install on Ubuntu. What is your operating system?
