[XeTeX] `tolerance for underfull \hbox' was `xelatex problem after new 2003 setup'

I found that the following worked in the preamble

\tolerance 1414
\emergencystretch 1.5em
\vfuzz \hfuzz

I have not had any problems with documents using this. However, I would 
like to know why some of us experience this and others don't. I am 
especially curious since I didn't used to have this problem, but now I 
do. What brought it about...?
