My best guess is that it is related to technique.

Do you have an outfeed table of some kind to push the pieces onto or are they tipping up and going to the floor as they exit? If the latter, then it might be that corner of the workpiece rubbing the blade just a bit as it tips up and out. As the piece exits the cut, there just isn’t much support from the fence and it is very easy for leverage to take over and move the board just a bit. I used to have a similar problem on the table saw and that was the cause.

If you don’t have one, try adding an outfeed support and see if that helps.
