PlotLegend Question

When I use PlotLegend the amount of space devoted to the line (red line, 
or whatever) in the legend is pretty small. In fact, when the line is 
dashed or dash-dotted, it is difficult to tell the difference. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Kevin
Here is an example

<< PlotLegends`
bs = {FontFamily -> "Arial", FontSize -> 14, FontWeight -> Bold};
SetOptions[Plot,
   	Frame -> True,
   	FrameStyle -> AbsoluteThickness[2],
   	GridLines -> Automatic,
   	PlotStyle -> {{Red, AbsoluteThickness[2]}, {Black,
      AbsoluteThickness[2]}, {Blue,
      AbsoluteThickness[2]}, {Darker@Green, AbsoluteThickness[2]}},
   BaseStyle -> bs
   ];
Plot[{Sin[x], Cos[x], Tan[x]}, {x, 0, 1},
  PlotStyle -> {Directive[Blue, Thick],
    Directive[Thick, Red, DotDashed], Directive[Thick, Green, Dotted]},
  Background -> LightOrange, PlotLegend -> {"sin x", "cos x", "tan x"},
  LegendPosition -> {-.6, 0.1},
  LegendOrientation -> Vertical,
  LegendBackground -> LightPurple,
  LegendShadow -> {.02, -.02},
  LegendSize -> {0.3, 0.35}, FrameLabel -> {"x", "trig functions"}
  ]
