Print Composer: Scalebar box vertically resizes itself after change to other Item elements

When adding a scalebar element to a map in the Print Composer, the default is that there is very little whitespace between the bottom of the scalebar and the border of the scalebar box. The user can adjust this to add space, but if another item box (such as legend, label, etc.) is adjusted on the page (such as moved or resized), the scalebar reverts to its original spacing and removes the whitespace. However, it doesn't always do this behaviour after every manipulation, it appears to be random.
It can be frustrating because if all the elements on a map have been carefully arranged to line up with each other, the sudden resizing of the scalebar box will look off, and sometimes it's not immediately apparent until after the final export.
I've noticed this issue since v 1.8.
