Custom Library "long" footprint pad size discrepancy

When designing a new part in my custom Electronics Library, I specify the hole size and pad size for a "Long" (oblong) style pad in the Library Editor and all looks fine as shown in this screen shot:

BUT, when I insert the part into a design, the pads for the part come out bigger than they should be as shown in these screen shots of the 2D and 3D PCB designs.

Is this a software glitch, or am I doing something wrong?

Please help!!!

This problem was solved by Jorge Garcia's excellent article on the subject at this link:

https://www.autodesk.com/products/eagle/blog/what-you-didnt-know-about-eagle-restring/

 

Note that the Restring tab in the DRC settings that Jorge mentions in the article has been renamed to Annular Ring.
