If the fixture is marked for a certain maximum watts, and you are using the right watts, it should not be melting or smelling bad.

Is it really in a bookshelf, ie: poor air flow over or around it?

I would lift it up on little blocks to get some air flow under it before cutting in to it. Cutting it might void the warranty.
