I always use `artist-mode' to draw in emacs.

Then you can select `Drawing > Rectangle' from the mouse-2 menu to
select rectangle mode, and drag out a rectangle with the mouse ...
or if you want to use the keyboard, use `C-c C-a r' to select rectangle
mode, and then use RET to start a rectangle, C-b/C-f/C-p/C-n to drag
it, and then RET again to finish.

It's really quite spiffy...

[but that said, the picture-mode behavior you're complaining about
sounds like a bug, so I've CC'd this to bug-gnu-emacs]
