[Freetype] How to deal with inconsistent fixed pitch?

I was testing the cour.ttf font that comes with Windows and it has
the FT_FACE_FLAG_FIXED_WIDTH set. However, when I load bitmaps
for this font, I get a different value for FT_BitmapGlyph->root.advance.x
with the space character vs. all other characters. Thus, the face flag
says the font is fixed width but the character advance widths are
different. Needless to say, this is a problem.
What is the proper way of dealing with this? How do I know what the
real advance width for the font should be? Is this a bug in FreeType
or is it a bug in the .ttf file or is it a bug in my expectation that
things should work sensibly? :)
