Lines: End handle won't respond to shift + left arrow in certain measures

Open the attached score. Apply a Guitar Barre line (or any line for that matter) from the advanced workspace, line palette to bar 2. Try to reduce the line by clicking on the end handle and using shift + left arrow. It won't move.

It is possible my previous fix might have broken this specific case, but I think not, and in any case, there would have other cases broken before that. Some changes in behavior would have been seen after…, but again, either way there would have been problems in certain cases.

I do believe my fix here finally gets at the root cause and should make line editing more reliable in the face of multiple voices. In the process, I also provide a fix for #63041: 8va lines can't be reduced in septuplet.
