Locator View: "Setting an extent across the 180th meridian is not supported"

When I try to create a locator view that covers the State of Alaska I get the message< "Setting an extent across the 180th meridian is not supported".

 

 

 

I understand that by creating a locator view we can limit ESRI World Geocoding results to a given area.  I've been able to limit results to USA which is a big help (thank you!) but I'd like to further limit results to cover the State of Alaska.  Unfortunately, when I attempt to create an extent that covers the State I get the message, "Setting an extent across the 180th meridian is not supported" and then the extent is cropped to not cross the 180th.

 

Are there any work-a rounds or solutions for this?  While there aren't that many occasions where it's necessary to get beyond the 180th Meridian, I don't feel comfortable implementing this without a solution that covers the whole state.  Until I can fix this we'll continue to get returns for Anchorage, Kentucky and such.

 

Any help would be appreciated.
