Weaving in end at the cuff of a sock

Hi Gents-

Here's a question for all the sock knitters here: when making top-down socks, what can be done with the cast-on tail at the cuff?  I knit the tail in for the first several stitches of the cuff, so it's secure, but I haven't had great luck hiding the rest of it. 

Usually (not at the cuff), I weave in the end (as detailed here) then leave an inch or so discretely hanging inside the work.  It eventually felts into place and everything is fine.  However, at the top of the sock, I don't want an inch hanging out, and if I clip the end any shorter, it pops to the outside.  Any suggestions?
