Same here with exception that I want to change the font size.
Did you find a solution?

how to obtain current sourcecode from sf-svn)
var(color) foreColor, borderColor;
@#iFont.ignoreNegativeBase := 1;
a possible workaround could be to change the metauml_defaultFont or defaultscale
respectively - however I
(1) don't know how to acomplish that
(2) am afraid this is only a solution for general layout, not for fine grained
control of how specific State-boxes look like.
Best regards and let me know if you find something,
