The instrument name in the mixer is the name of the instrument in the sounfont and is not linked to the instrument name in the staff property box. I put this bug to "by design". Put it on active if I'm not clear.

Mellotron, Wurlitzer and Farfisa Organ are instruments not available from the list (as it's classed as a synthesiser), but you could associate it with another sound. Hence, I re-name it.
