Thanks David and Harm. Before troubling you more I will try 2.19.81. In fact I am already using 2.18.1.
The .ly file was 24 KB. The problem only occurs when I take a song already (successfully) scored as a volta of 3 to 5 verses and split it into two back-to-back voltas to make for easier sight reading.
