Let's see if there exist someone who saw this thread and hasn't installed yet!

Examples of words:
Connected: شاهنامه
Not connected: ش ا ه ن ا م ه

My hypothesis fact: Before installing FontHack they were connected (look at left picture) but now they're not (look at right picture), so... maybe... ?!
You can do that yourself: take a screenshot. Uninstall fonthack (and possibly the custom freetype, if you installed that). Take another screenshot. Compare the screenshots.

I don't see how merely installing fonthack would change the spacing for existing fonts - because merely installing fonthack essentially does nothing at all. Installing the custom freetype lib might have more impact (hint: you can also install that independently from fonthack). And obviously, setting custom fonts will result in changes (at least for latin characters - I'm not sure if the persian glyphs are affected, or if it simply keeps using the Code2000 font for those).
