The height of a tie depends on its length. Shorter ties are smaller in Y
direction, meaning that they more easily fit in spaces. Without studying
the code, I guess that for the half-note case, the tips of the ties
would be too high relative to the note head if it was in the same space,
so it is moved one space outward.
