If you're up for experimenting, save the altered document as either an fodt
or pdf, and then check to see what fonts are actually included in those.
With fodt, open the file in a text editor - not a word processor; you'll be
able to look through the style listings to see what fonts are actually used.
For pdf files, Acrobat Reader lets you see a list of embedded fonts.

Depending on the number of fonts used in your document, this may or may not
help you figure out if Writer has decided to substitute one or more of those
fonts (it gives no indication in the program that it has done so). Also be
aware that if LibreOffice replaced the version of some existing font on your
system, that could also explain what is happening. Look at the dates on the
font files being used (they're in different locations depending on the OS,
whether they're installed just for you or for all users, etc. so I can't
help you there). Since you likely don't know what dates were on the font
files before the LO update, this won't really tell you anything unless the
date stands out as being inconsistent with your original install (and later
than that date).

And - if absolutely necessary, you can edit the style (assuming you're using
styles) to set a fixed line spacing (Format > Paragraph > Indents & Spacing
Line Spacing > Fixed - the box will show what is actually in use, and you
can play with this setting to see if it forces line spacing back to where it
used to be). This is NOT RECOMMENDED because of side effects, but might get
you out of an immediate jam until you can figure out what's going on.
