Teardrop issue/traces narrowing at vias?

Hello,

 

We are having a strange problem.  We are designing a board with wide traces (for higher currents) that looks fine in PADS, but the gerber files show this weird "necking" as the traces approach vias. 

 

The left image below shows how the traces look in PADS, and the right shows the created gerber file.  We want the traces to go straight into the vias without any narrowing.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks much!
