Hi Graham,

For the record, I just added \pageBreaks where I want them... and Lilypond 
outputted 25 pages: it added 20 blank pages and scattered them amongst the 5

Hi, Kieren,

I assume you already defined page-count = #5? There's a known issue (at least it's been on the mailing lists, no clue whether it's in the bug tracker and/or some known issues section in the docs) as follows: If page-count is defined in the 2.13 series (at least the earlier releases), \pageBreak produces page-count many breaks for the whole score; thus, you have to either set page-count = #1 (sic!) and use manual page breaks, or use \override NonMusicalPaperColumn #'page-break-permission = ##f and omit the page-count definition.

By the way, I have no clue whether the same holds for system-count and 'line-break-permission. IMHO, this could also be show stopper for 2.14...

HTH, and good luck with the deadline,
