Incorrectly repeated notes

I attached the file, where the first whole note sounds correctly the first time played, but when repeated it sounds like a quarter note. Also, deleting any middle measure changes the picture.

What soundfont are you using?
It could be heavy vibrato that sounds like individual notes.

I use MuseScore_General.sf3 font. But the same thing happens with a different accordion font. And I'm not that bad yet. For sure, I can tell the difference between vibrato and three quarters rest.

I see what you mean.
While viewing the piano roll editor and, in the score, clicking that tied quarter note at the very end, the PRE highlights the entire tied group (as a single 'long note'). Apparently that 'long note' doesn't get truncated for the repeat, and so overlaps the beginning.

It sounds fine to me on 3.5.2 (which is what you used) on Windows 10, your version of Windows isn't reported but that shouldn't matter since you have the 64 bit version of the program. All I did was open it and play.
