OTF and TTF versions of the same font render small type differently (hinting issue?)

The attached pdf was created using XeLatex and includes two versions of the same font, one taken from the original otf and the second from a ttf file converted from the original using fontforge. Viewing this pdf in okular/evince on my system reuslts in the otf embedded font CID type 0c) not being hinted regardless of settings, while the ttf font is hinted by default (and responds to hinting toggled in okular).
I've seen the same with at least one other font, the problem does not occur with adobe acorbat reader and the okular guys pointed out that all rendering is handled by poppler.
I'm attaching a screenshot and the pdf.
This manifests on an updated fedora 20 x86-64 system, which contains the 0.18.5 version of okular and poppler 0.24.3. The same problem occurs in evince.
