New cassette woes

I've just had a new wheel built on an XT hub for my 9 speed Bizango.

I bought an XT cassette for the new wheel, the stock old wheel has an HG400 cassette (still servicable), both are 11-34.

The new wheel works fine with the HG400 cassette, but I get pretty bad chain rub on the XT cassette (I've not tried the old wheel with the XT cassette).

The chain is an SRAM 971.

I thought cassettes were interchangable - I guess I was wrong, what am I missing?
