This also occurs without a \partial:

\score {
  \new StaffGroup <<
    \new Voice = "abc" {
      \relative c'' {
        c4 c4 c4 c4
    } }
    \new Lyrics {
      \small
      \set stanza = "1."
      \lyricsto "abc" {
        foo bar baz quux
} } >> }

Mats reports that this which was introduced somewhere between version 2.8 and 2.10.

Since it worked in 2.8, it's a regression tag, but not Critical priority because it's
so old.

Even more stripped down:

\version "2.15.5"

<<
  \new Voice = "abc" \relative c'' { c4 c4 }
  \new Lyrics {
    \small
    \lyricsto "abc" { A B } 
  }
>>


The problem is that the \lyricsto is placed inside the Lyrics {...}. So it is interpreted as the first moment and the \lyricsto has an effect only starting at the second moment.

A further similar example from Jay Anderson.  In this case, commenting out the set stanza line makes the problem go away, as does moving it inside the first section.

words = \lyricmode
{
  \set stanza = "1."
  <<
    { a b c d }
    \new Lyrics \lyricsto "melody"
    { a b c d }
  >>
}

tune = \relative c' { c c c c }

\score
{
  <<
    \new Staff \new Voice=melody \tune
    \new Lyrics \lyricsto melody \words
  >>
}

From the CG: "Regression: it used to work intentionally in the current stable release or the previous stable release".  This hasn't worked for a number of stable releases, and it may not have been intentional even when it did work.
