This seems weird indeed; the Times New Roman that I have does not  
even include such a ligature. My guess is that something about the  
way your font/language commands are defined is actually leading to a  
different font altogether being used. But to figure out what's wrong,  
it would be helpful to see a minimal document that illustrates the  
strange behavior. Can you pare it down to a single heading and just  
the essential packages for the document to compile, and then let us  
see what's there?
