inc duration of previous note causes subsequent note to break into un-tied smaller notes if necessarily changes start tick

The title is temporary. I'm on commit ae09a445ff884bbca59bb21cf71f328c9e7e6510 2.1-dev. If I change this selected 64th rest into a quarter rest:


Then that action necessarily will cause the subsequent quarter note to start 1/32th later and become 7/32th of a beat, however MuseScore is currently breaking that into 1/32 + 1/16 + 1/8, but is incorrectly forgetting to tie those notes together:


I should note MuseScore should be able to represent that as a double-dotted eight note, but for some reason it isn't.


I don't know if in the process you are looking at the placement of these rests. The final 64th, 32nd and 16th rests of the measures should all be lined up, but notice BnA-change-to-64th.mscz

I thought the rest count was getting off again, but it seems this is only the location of the rests. I left line 1 so the time sig wouldn't affect layout.

line 2 is your example
line 3 is 2 with first rest doubled
line 4 is line 3 with expanded notes changed to double dotted 1/2 to see where rests fall.

@mike320, actually there is no requirement for musescore to line up rests between different measures, and in fact that is not desired. There is only the requirement to line up elements in the same *measure*. So if I put each of those on a different *staff* but in the same *measure*, then all the rests and notes line up correctly:
