Of course, I was thinking of the brackets as grouping the notes, not beaming them. Anyway, when I remove the brackets, the resulting music is printed with the -3- undernote-grouper-thing showing the notes grouped as [1/4rest-1/4note](with a number 3under the group) then a single 1/4note (with a #3 under it) then [1/4rest-1/4note](with a #3 under those two notes) then a single 1/4note(with a #3 under it). They should of course be grouped [1/4rest-1/4note-1/4note] [1/4note-1/4note-1/4note]
Here is a link to what is looks like -

Have you used "\set tupletSpannerDuration = #(ly:make-moment 1 4)" previously in the music?

Because that is the only way I can reproduce your problem. Try adding "\set tupletSpannerDuration = #(ly:make-moment 1 2)" before your quarter-triplets. The relevant section in the manual is at

Thanks Joe,
I added the code you suggest to the piece and it now displays the triplets as expected (two groups of 3).
