Click (metronome) bleed on direct guitar track

Hey everyone. I've just ran into one of many recording challenges (we all know those). Hope you can help me out with this one...
I'm laying down a guitar track in Reaper. Guitar input directly into USB interface (Tascam US122L) and the signal is processed by an amp sim.
I'm playing with a reference click track on my headphones.

After the guitar track was done, I'm listening to it and noticing the click track is somehow bleeding through on the guitar track.

- I've unplugged all microphones from the interface that could pick up on the signal from my headphones
- There are no sends/receives on the tracks
- With the guitar unplugged from the interface, the click is still bleeding through when I record a 'silent' track
- The click is not bleeding through when I unplug the headphones or mute the click track during recording
- The click track is muted when I play back the guitar track

So I think this either has to do with Reaper... or the line-out signal is somehow bleeding through on the line-in inside the audio interface.
Any thoughts?
