"Fix VBR MP3 Header" on CBR files?

The verify file integrity tool gives me a lot of "Warning: Reported length is inaccurate" results on my mp3 files. This is strange because I encoded most of them myself and maintain a checksum database of all my files, so I know corruption is not the issue. I'm assuming it was an old version of the LAME encoder which caused the problem.

I am aware of the "Fix VBR MP3 Header" utility to repair this issue, however, many of the files being flagged are CBR, not VBR. I've also read about a lot of issues with this feature in general (fixing the lengths in foobar but breaking them in another player, etc). I'm just wondering if there are any known problems with using a VBR utility to repair a CBR file, and any other information about what exactly this feature does would be helpful.
