I think he means sliding it all the way to the left. It sounds to me like 
an internal state is not updated. Like when you create the BSlider, it will 
have a value of 0, and then programatically setting another value will 
somewhere not cause an adjustment, and when you drag all the way to the 
left, it thinks nothing changed and doesn't fire. From there on, everything 
seems to be in sync. Something like that...
