Stephan - thanks for the reply. I sometimes despair at my communication skills. I apologize.

I will look at your suggestion.

Hi Guy

Nobody has answered up to now. Without being a lilypond god, your phrases
* "real score" vs. snippet
* "The organ left hand has a polyphonic context."
made me think.

The snippet itself looks perfect (at least to me), even without your
tweeks. The need to tweak a situation as simple as this one has a smell
(as software dev say ;-) ).

I strongly assume that there is a voice issue in your LH - before the
snippet you posted. Have you already insistently tracked your voices /
\voiceOne, \voiceTwo, (or \voiceThree, \voiceFour ) creating implicit
voice contexts, things like that? Coloring the voices may help.
