I wondered a bit about that too, but not enough to investigate until you
It seems to be caused by the labelled 'Z' block, which was just added to
get the section lines, and the 'Z' label isn't actually required to
generate that last line. Omiting the 'Z' label gives the expected course

Perhaps I should change the ones I entered into CompLib.
I looked at some other peals,
5040 Stedman Triples Op. 87 Joseph W Parker
5040 Stedman Triples Brian D Price
5040 Stedman Triples Philip A B Saddleton
which all have a lettered block used (rather than defined) at the end of a
part and have
as the part-end.
CompLib is an impressive tool/collection, with "Composition Library beta"
"23,247 Compositions 20,870 Methods 80 Collections"
but the wording states:
"Welcome to Composition Library
Composition Library is still under development, so please do not rely on
the accuracy of any information presented. Any comments, suggestions or
bug reports are welcome."
which although probably true for many programs (either it is under
development, and some things are broken and are being fixed, or nothing is
changing, and any bugs won't be fixed), gives a slight sense of unease.
