If I remember correctly, fix-cm "fixes" the European Computer Modern  
fonts (EC fonts) in order to appear exactly the same as the Computer  
Modern fonts. (CM and EC fonts don't have the same range of optical  
sizes, hence very diffent looks in sans serif titles, for example).

So, fix-cm does not apply to the Latin Modern fonts, which have the  
same range of optical sizes than the CM fonts.
