I'm not sure if what you are describing is a "problem" per se
or just the way that the boat works.
Helps to know which boat you are talking about. All boats but the Wave have the tiller extension behind the main sheet / traveller. As part of the process of tacking or jibing, you switch the tiller from one side to the other by swinging it around behind the boat.
You can see the tiller trailing backwards in this photo:
On the Wave, there's no traveller, and the tiller / tiller crossbar is in front of the mainsheet.
