The spaces between the glyphs are not exactly the spaces, they are the broken horizontal stems. Also more test cases will show that they are not equally spaced for any two glyphs, sometimes even connected.
Anyway, we do not have bold style for the Punjabi fonts within the font. The bold font is shown through the synthetic emboldening functionality of freetype. OpenOffice may have its own emboldening methods. In any case, this is not a bug for font.
