The best way round it is to fret the mini barre with your ring finger, this is also a useful technique when playing barre chords changing from E shape to A shape (like in Moody blues Ride my Seesaw). By playing the barre with your ring finger your hand is more open so it's easier to get your thumb round to fret the F#
Oops, Shadow beat me to it, slightly different but still works.
Try again oldie :)

No need to get the top E string ringing out at all ... thumb over for F# and barre across strings 4,3, 2 with 1st finger
