That repros on my machine, but AUMS very definitely has glyphs for all the Oriya characters and has them mapped in the cmap from the appropriate codepoints. -- this I have confirmed.

    This is a known feature of Uniscribe (not Charmap). With recent
    versions of Uniscribe, if you try to render certain complex scripts
    (Indic, Tibetan, Mongolian, etc.) with a font that does not have OT
    tables for the selected script, then only the digits will display, and
    everything else will be rendered as boxes. There was a discussion on
    this issue by myself, James Kass and Paul Nelson on the VOLT mailing
    list a couple of years ago, but as I can't find a way of searching the
    list archives, I can't provide a link.
