Is it possible that your riving knife is not centered on the blade so that it is pushing the piece being cut against the blade? Try adjusting your fence so that you will just shave a blade width of material off of a board to see what it does. Then make a regular cut and carefully watch the kerf at the riving knife to see if it is centered.

Is it possible that the fence surface is not straight? Some have wood and laminate faces. If that surface has become bowed then as the cut piece approaches the end of the fence it will get pushed into the blade. Measuring blade-fence distance at the front and back of the blade may not detect this.
