As far as I can tell, this is an Open Toolkit issue and is not specific to XMetaL. I'm surprised that nobody has reported it before.
I've logged a bug here against the Open Toolkit: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2879196&group_id=132728&atid=725074
As a primitive workaround, depending on what font you are using in your PDF index you might be able to use another character that looks like a colon. Here is one that should work in a few fonts: http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/05c3/browsertest.htm
