Hi Jack,

the default duration is always updated by the last duration you wrote
in LilyPond-syntax.
This is a feature, no bug.

If you really, really want to circumvent it, define variables in scheme:

#(define whole_rest #{ r1 #})
\relative c' { c c c c }

Though, this will become very tedious, very fast.

 Imho, it should be no big problem to do
\relative c' { c4 c c c }
