Summary0000154: Empty \local..boxes are creating problems
DescriptionAttached is a bug test from Elie Roux illustrating the problem,
which is that \localleftbox {} results in an empty \hbox{} being added to each line.

Elie wrote:
I have finally found the bug I was tracking in Gregorio for some time... Here is an example where putting empty boxes does not lead to a strange behaviour, but to a really buggy behaviour: If an empty \localleftbox is set with attribute 1, and after that we set the attribute to -1, the lines after the first will still have the attribute set to 1, because the empty box will set it... It is I think extremely confusing, and it's a bug that is difficult to track (even if now that I have the solution it will be a one-liner patch to fix it). So I insist, I think that removing the nodes will be much better, because this kind of behaviour will certainly appear with a lot of styles using \localleftbox.
Additional InformationIn the implementation it will be best to intercept the empty box at definition time. If there is no contents, it can revert back to voidness right there.
TagsNo tags attached.
