For the fixme, It shouldn't apply per document settings here, they are
not in the prefs so they won't have changed.  Just leave it out.

Havn't had time to look at this, but as I said its a last resort.

I'm not Nick, but I would suggest leaving it until after release,
thats not far away, and then as soon as it is committed Nick will have
built a new version :)
