Percentage width doesn't work with recent texlive

I have no idea what a "Lyx" document is, but nor can I see any mention of "percentage" in your problem description whilst the subject line reads "Re: Percentage width doesn't work with recent texlive" — can you clarify both aspects, please ?

On the *next* page is a footnote containing the musical characters (flats and sharps), in English. For whatever reason, it's throwing an error that these glyphs are missing in the *Greek* font. Sometimes it allows me to show the output anyway, and those glyphs -- even though they're in text coded as US-English, using a font for which they are present, they nevertheless show up as blanks in the footnote, but are displayed in the main text.
