Spurious Higher Harmonics with Sound Emulator

I have a few scores that are written for classical guitar. They are "Myshkin's Marie" and "Chasing Marbles". When I play them with the sound emulator, the classical guitar playback inserts spurious higher harmonic notes, that sounds like a xylophone. I think it is a bug: those harmonics certainty are not written. Thanks for checking on this.

Chances are this is either an auditory illusion (eg, your soundcard, speakers, and ears are conspiring to make some of the upper partials just strong enough to be perceived as additional notes) or else a flaw in the soundfont you are using. So also tell us what soundfont you see listed in View / Synthesizer, and which sound specific you see listed for the staff in question in View / Mixer.
