Happens to me sometimes too -- the thumb going outward/backward like that.

Two pieces of advice:

-- Just try not to. smile
Be aware of where it happens, and practice making your thumb be more how you feel it should be -- but without straining.

-- There are some places where you can't avoid having your thumb do something like that, and then you have to work on placing your hand "just so," so that you won't hit other keys. That's one of the problems of such a thumb position: you're liable to hit other keys.
