Let me try to be more clear about this...
Stereo Mix records whatever is going through the soundcard. When you first record the guitar that's the only sound that is going through the soundcard, so that's what it records. When you record something else while
another sound is playing (in this case the previously recorded guitar playing through the headphones) you get that on recording too.
Try watching a youtube video or playing an mp3 while you record the guitar and see if the sound from the video doesn't get in the recording too...
Now if you select the input where you have the mixer connected has the recording device you should get the same thing as you get with the stereo mix for the guitar, but
when you record a second track while playing the first now you will only
get the sound coming from the mixer.
