Seat always moving to the back

My seat seems to always end up sliding on it's rails until it's as far back as possible. Happened with my old post all the time, no matter how much I cleaned it etc. I recently bought a new one (Thomson so should be good quality), fitted it yesterday, put some carbon grip paste on the rails to be sure it didn't slip, tightened it up (meant to be 5nm so finger tight) and yet it still slipped backwards.

Clearly the obvious answer is tighten it up more, anything else? I started to wonder if maybe I just needed my seat that far back, but I find it hard to believe as I am at the lower end of the height range for the bike and I don't think I have abnormally long thighs!
