Chord symbols don't transpose when changing instrument/transposition in staff properties

Ubuntu 14.04, GIT commit: 9341f4e

1) new score, flute, C major
2) add chord symbol "C" to first measure
3) staff properties
4) change instrument to tenor saxophone

Result: key signature transposes, but chord symbol does not. Same thing if you leave the instrument alone but change the "play transposition".

I would have thought this worked at one time but cannot prove it. I know key signatures did not transpose until #31001: Wrong key when changing instrument.


Actually, the key signature issue is more fundamental than I thought. It's not that the key signature isn't transposed - it's that the transposition information is not reflect in the part. That is, changing transposition info in the score does not propagate to the part. I've filed this as #62416: Changes to staff transposition (and other properties) not reflected in linked parts.

I need to hold off on a fix for the chord symbol issue as the specifics of how I deal with parts will likely depend on how the transposition linking issue is handled.
