Multi-measure rests

Lilypond 1.4.8:  When I use multi-measure rests, I get these funny little
rests up until about 10 or so, then it goes to the long bar marking; for
example, if I have "\time 2/4 R2*9", I get two narrow vertical lines
spanning two spaces followed by a single whole rest, but if I have a
subsequent "R2*15", I get a horizontal line coinciding with the central
line on the staff, with two vertical lines connected to either end of it.
I prefer the latter style to the former style; is there any way I can
make Lilypond use that for all multi-measure rests longer than a single

Additionally, the stuff I'm working on at the moment has cue notes in the
middle of a multi-measure rest (which I'm implementing in a separate
Voice context with \tiny); when type-set, the whole rest grobs from the
multi-measure rest are not being displaced--they're appearing literally
in the middle of my cue notes.  Is there any way to fiddle with this to
get it readable?
