It's not true. Having shortage of FSM entries will make you lose space,
but it will be able to recycle Xids anyway.
I guess your problem is that you're not vacuuming all databases for some
reason. I'd advise to lose the -q and make sure you're not redirecting
to somewhere you can't read the log; the read the log and make sure
everything is going fine.
What's the warning anyway? Does it say that wraparound point is
nearing, or does it merely say that it is on Xid <some number here> and
you don't know how far that number actually is?
