Whole measure rest is too narrow (compared to whole measure note)

In the attached example, the full-bar rests are way too narrow, compared to 
measures with multiple note, and even to measures with one full-measure note.

This is not just ugly, musicians have real problems playing from these notes, 
as I experienced with some friends (professional string musicians!). The rest 
simply does not look long enough!
