Open a new buffer and type M-x picture-mode.

Press C-SPC to mark the current position.

Now, attempt to extend the marked region to the
rectangle size you desire with the following command:

C-f C-f C-f
C-n C-n C-n

This should've marked a region.  Now

C-c C-r should create a rectangle.

This _doesn't_ happen.
