Hide empty staves not respecting chords and lyrics

S4 - Minor

MuseScore version 1.0.
Enter chords and lyrics, add a page break at the end of a solo section, then hide empty staves to remove the empty part of the bass clef stave. The spacing of the remaining treble clef stave now ignores the chords and lyrics, and the chords for the second line of music overly the lyrics for the first line and so on.

MuseScore measures the system distance (Style > Edit Style > Page > System distance) from the staff instead of notes or other items outside of the staff. In this particular instance it would be better if the system distance measurement started from the chord names or lyric stanzas. However I don't know if this is true for every situation.

This is fixed in 2.x, not sure when exactly. It also looks ok on master c4307e1a6b but unfortunately the "hide empty staves" style was not applied during the import, I fixed it in afafe7000.
