To cut thicker woods well, the feed rate you use should be quite slow.  If not you can get a crooked or bowed cut with most any scroll saw..

I do that intentionally when I make inlays. :)
Loosen the table tilt knob, use a credit card as a square to make sure the blade and table are 90 degrees and re-tighten the knob securely. Either forget about the degree gauge or adjust it buy re-setting the little pointer.
You also want to check the blade and table from the back and front side of the blade. You can adjust that with shims under the table hold down bolts or by filing an elongated hole in the back table support. This is seldom necessary however..... You never know, and that knowledge may help on down the way. 
Now the make sure the blade is 90 degrees buy using a thicker piece of wood (1-1/2" or so thick) and cut a straight line into it about 1" or so. Now back the blade out of the cut, turn the wood around and put on the back side of the blade and see if the blade will slide back into the cut from the other side. If it works, Bob is your uncle and if not, START OVER again, you goofed. LOL
HTH.

I agree with Dennis.
Therefore, I would probably call it a bevel cut.
Be sure that the table is not tilted with repect to the blade.
Even if the number guide says the table is square, it may not
be accurate.
God Bless! Spirthorse

Not sure what it's called but, it sounds like you need to make sure your blade is square to the table, tensioned properly and then be sure you don't push your work piece sideways to stay on the line.
