As far as I know there's no way to bypass the overflow warning for a
single frame.

The real fix for this is probably to be able to have "free text" or the
option to have the frame snap around the actual borders of the glyphs
themselves, rather than the max space the font may require.

Both of these are requests in the bug tracker, and either or both might
be addressed by some ongoing work on the text layout system.


In the mean time, I'd suggest converting the type to outlines. Others
may have better approaches to the issue, though.
