Sure! Your using the development version too, right? 2.11.something?

But here's the example:

You'll see that the lyric extenders won't work under \lyricmode unless
the line
\set associatedVoice = "top"
is uncommented. This voice-association used to happen automatically back
in 2.10.

Now, if you switch from \lyricmode to \lyricsto, you'll see that the
extenders won't work even with the associatedVoice line included,
because \lyricsto won't accept the name of a Staff as it were that of a

So, if you want lyric extenders in 2.11 (barring \addlyrics) you must either
- Have your voices inside Voice contexts (even if there's only one per
  staff) and use \lyricsto
- Use \lyricmode with \set associatedVoice = "something"
