Well, LilyPond is far from alone! Searching in Google for
midi "orchestral strings" 47
gives 4830 hits whereas
midi "orchestral harp" 47
gives 52000 hits, so you're probably right!

It's easy to fix in LilyPond, but we shouldn't forget to add a convert-ly rule for it.

In lilypond 2.11 (and before), the 47th Midi instrument name is "orchestral strings" (see http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.11/

According to the General MIDI specification it should be "orchestral harp" (see http://www.midi.org/techspecs/gm1sound.php).

Thank you for your work!
