Help, let me leave work

Hold on a second--I was just about to leave work early on a Friday afternoon so I could get started on my weekend bathroom remodeling project, but I figured I should check with JB one last time--low and behold I came across a thread which suggests the bottom of the studs around the shower should be notched so the folded shower pan liner will not bulge and keep the CBU from lying flat. Is this true, should I notch my studs?

Furthermore, the same thread suggested the studs should be shimmed so there is no bowing to the wall--while I understand that you don't want walls that look likes waves on an ocean, minor waves (3/16ths) shouldn't matter since I am using tile that is only 3/4ths by 3/4ths of an inch in size. Or should it? How much of a wave could be allowed between studs?

Please, someone who knows what they are doing quick reply so I can leave work.

Come on DaveM
It wasn't a requirement on your behalf, it was a sarcastic remark which implies that I am the one who is clueless (which is very true when it comes to putting my bathroom back together--destroying a perfectly functioning old bathroom was the easy part).
I'm pleadin' with you.

Murfer,

Dave was kidding. Besides that he's timid and a bit sensitive. You should know that by now.

3/16 wouldn't be too much of a problem in a CBU shower if it were spread from floor to top of shower, but it's not. It usually occurs right at the bottom where the pan gets in the way. And in a short distance -- a foot to a foot and a half or so -- it can show.

So, leave work, go home and fix it.
