Always in the past, these fixme messages were unimportant. I always had 
lot's of them too.

Just thought I would also mention that if you use client side font 
rendering, there are no more cached font metrics. That hassle goes away. 
Client side rendering does require very recent versions of libfreetype 
and libxrender, though. And fonts look better, as a nice bonus.
