How many voices does your example have? 
Have you coded the different instruments in different
Staff contexts (with different names)?
Timidity has a limit on the number of channels it can handle
(though there's an option to increase the number).
Timidity could provide very verbose output on what's
going. I don't remember the flag but check the man page.

What Lilypond version are you using?
