I'm surprised nobody had anything to say about this. Anybody at Revolution
want to give it a go?

I've also discovered some other interesting math "behaviour" in regards to
LittleArrows. If I do this in a script (to fix the above bug), I get
incorrect results:

    put -(the thumbPosition of me)

If the thumbPosition happens to be at -6, I get 6.001984 instead of 6. This
is quite surprising, but I'm glad I haven't spent the $300 yet...
