You should be able to work around the issue by initially positioning the thumb via css and adjusting the top and bottom constraints accordingly. TBH, I'm not sure if this will do the trick since I'm on FB 1.3 (1.4 is a wreck and 1.5 isn't official yet) and haven't been able to reproduce the issue.
With all the trouble we've been having recently related to FB 1.4, it's disheartening to hear that 1.5 is still causing havoc.
