  1. Open the attached score.
  2. Select the bend and add some nodes to it.
    Expected result: The bend should extend, but there should be no additional space added between notes.
    Actual result: Adding a node also adds more space between notes.

The underlying issue is that automatic placement does not work with bends at all: it simply adds a space between the end of the bend and the next note. This makes it difficult, if not impossible, to align the bend with its associated notes/fret marks. e.g.

For now the workaround is to turn off AP for all bends in the score.
