I disagree.  IMHO, LilyPond is plain wrong.  If there is a number
above the rest, it certainly does *not* indicate the number of counts
but the number of bars.  In other words, even if you have, say, \time
18/4, a two-bar rest should be realized with the breve rest symbol and
the number `2' above it.

A similar situation arises if you are using 4/4-rests within 2/4 music
to indicate whole rests.

Please file a bug report.
