Big Dummy & Avid BB& Discs: clearance problem!?

Hey BD nuts... I have a question... Have any of you installed BB7 brakes on your frame yet? I tried to transfer my old (first generation perhaps) BB7s from my mountain bike (temporary donation until I buy new ones) and ran into trouble on the rear.

The front went on no problem, but on the back, the disc is too close to the frame so the mounting bracket will not fit correctly between the frame and the disc. Does the mounting bracket come in different thicknesses if I buy a new brake? I figured that these clearances would be standard... Any ideas?
