That possibility did occur to me as well: you've got the full power output of a star to work with, why not use some of it to keep the structure, er, inflated? Kind of like a space fountain, only more so. If done right it might actually reduce the technobabble coefficient of the design. If the control systems go down you're screwed, but that was true with the impossibly strong material anyway, because the sphere isn't dynamically stable.
