Annoying placement of the Emergency Call button on WP8 slider screen

This is me being nit-picky here, but is anyone else extremely annoyed with the decision to move the "emergency call" button out of the numeric pad area and adding more space at the bottom to accommodate the new button?

It's looks like a minor thing, but for something that affects the beginning of every session with my phone, it's annoying to have to slide up the panel that much more before the numeric keypad will lock into position.
