[Tugindia] Problem with tableofcontents

Hello, all
I have a strange problem with the \tableofcontents macro.

I am writing a text in which the number of chapters runs into 
double digits; in some chapters the number of sections also runs 
into double digits. I find that when this happens the 
corresponding entry in the Contents page, produced by the default 
\tableofcontents macro, is most unsatisfactory; there is no gap 
between the chapter-section number and the section title; I get 
something that looks like this:

10.11More on conic sections

(no gap between "10.11" and "More"). The preamble in my document 
looks like this:

\textheight21cm \textwidth14cm
\parskip2mm \parindent=3ex
\voffset-5mm \hoffset0mm

I would be grateful for some help in this matter. Thanks.
