I had the same problem when FBIK frist came out in Maya. Everything would seem fine until I reopened the file and it looked like the characters thumb exploded. The geometry of the character was all blown out in certain areas (usually, in my case, the appendages). The fix that I figured out was to go to a working version and lock the scale attributes on the joints. This kept all the polys weighted to certain joints from "blowing up". Give it a try.

FBIK can be a valuable tool in the right circumstances. It can really give a character some great secondary motion if used right. You should learn how to take advantage of it. Just my 2 cents...

I've never understood the appeal of it either.
