[CM] CMN - arrow-down and straight flag interaction

hi again,
i was sure i'd reported this before a few years ago, but can't find it
on the web or in my own files, so:

when i ask for a straight-flagged note with a arrow-down head, a la:

(in-package :cmn)
(setf *straight-flag-dy* .2)
(cmn (curvy-flags nil)(output-file "flag-test-arrow.eps")
    (c5 e (note-head :arrow-up))
    (rest e)
    (c4 e (note-head :arrow-down))
    (rest e))

... the note's flag is displaced a bit to the right of its stem.
probably this has something to do with the fact that the arrow-* heads
are centered on the end of their stems, rather than justified to the
right or left.

i'd like to use this note head to indicate "lowest possible pitch" in
a score - can anyone help me out?
