I seem to recall some problems with that as well. IIRC, \resetint must 
be given before \installfonts or prefixed with \global. It's been 
some time, though, and I could be wrong.

I think I ran into this problem in the past when trying to reset 
"smallcapsscale" on the fly (i.e. inside the installfonts 
environment) to fine-tune it for different weights.

I'd appreciate any insights on this topic.
