Control wheel location a problem for me.

When I hold the camera with my finger on the shutter release button my thumb seems to fall naturally on the rear control wheel and I may change the setting un-noticed in the heat of shooting. For example, in "Shutter Mode" I may start shooting at say 1/250 and find that while shooting my thumb changed the speed to 1/2000 or something else and ruined the exposure. Has anyone else had this problem using the D7x? Is there a way to avoid this?
