Before I take this to TAC, I thought I'd poll the crowd.
I'm attempting to set the source interface for Telnet and SSH traffic to loopback 1, which is up/up.
loopback 1 192.168.1.1 YES NVRAM up up default-vrf
ip telnet source-interface loopback 1
When I attempt to Telnet to another router from the device, I get the following error:
Inactive source address

Looks to me like you have setup the device correctly (example below) - If you confirm the below is the same as your setup then I would call the TAC OR depending on what version of code you are running on what device (CER/MLX) check the latest release notes for that version of code you are on to see if a bug has been filed and fixed.
To specify the lowest-numbered IP address configured on a loopback interface as the device’s source for all Telnet packets, enter commands such as the following.
Brocade(config)# int loopback 2
Brocade(config-lbif-2)# ip address 10.0.0.2/24
Brocade(config)# ip telnet source-interface loopback 2
The commands configure loopback interface 2, assign IP address 10.0.0.2/24 to it, then designate it as the source for all Telnet packets from the Brocade device.
