It seems that lout is confused about the juxtaposition of a galley
(receptive symbol) and another word if the concatenation operator
preceding the galley is the `&' (but not any other).  E.g

    X &@SomeGap  @Galley{word}

is treated as if `word' is juxstaposed to the `X', i.e.

    X{word} &@SomeGap @Galley

Running lout with -dpg shows in particular:

    gp: PrintWord(goes, at h = ..., v = ...)

Where the word `goes' is before the galley and the comma is after the

To fix the problem it's sufficient to put an explicit `&'
concatenation between the galley and the juxtaposed word.  E.g.:

    def @GalleyTarget
    { The galley goes @Galley & , whow! }

The @OneCol also helps since there's no longer any word immediately
(in the sense of `&'-concatenated) preceding the galley that the
following word can tack to.

Also note, that { Slope } @Font @Galley, works as expected as well
(i.e. comma is italicized).

It seems like a minor bug to me.
