If the problem "goes away" when removing bullets, you are probably a victim
of bug # 92657.

Read through the entire conversation at: 

Writer will sometimes substitute bullets from another font even when there
are bullets in the font you're using; this is related to other font
substitutions it makes based on the font matching info it gets from the OS.

If this is the case, the spacing between the line with the bullet and the
line immediately below it in the same paragraph will have greater spacing
that what exists between any subsequent two lines in the same paragraph. If
so, it may or may not help for you to post a confirmation reply to that bug
along with the usual info: OS & version, version of LO, name of font in use,
and anything else you think might be useful.

I believe this is actually part of the deeper font substitution problem
(although I suspect the thing with bullets is a special case). You CAN, by
the way, sort of make the problem disappear by editing the bulleted list
style and specifying a smaller bullet or your default font. Go to Styles and
Formatting either from the Menu, the sidebar, or by pressing F11. Then
choose Character Styles, and then Bullets (this latter does NOT appear
unless you are set to "Show ALL styles" and even then it may show up as a
series of 7 boxes instead of the characters "Bullets."

Then, choose "Modify" and you'll see that Writer is not using your paragraph
font for the bullets. Here you can do one of two things: making sure that
you can see the actual document, change the font size and press "Apply" - if
your paragraph size is set to 12, for instance, set the bullet style to 10
and see what happens. (Actually, first try setting it much larger and press
Apply just to prove to yourself that this is the cause of your particular
problem.)  The other option is to simply change the font to the one you are
using as the paragraph font and you'll see the problem disappear.

I hope this has been explained clearly enough that you can "fix" your
