I ended up writing a wrapper function which put two invisible bubbles bottom-left and top-right of the plotrange and making sure none of my data was outside of that plot range (filtering if necessary).  This then means the bubbles are a fixed size with-respect to the plot itself since bubble size scales to the plotrange.
