+2 It's a rather unwritten rule regards a new cassette (or chainrings) = a new chain. Chains rapidly adapt to their environment. That means stretching and merging to match the shape of the old cassette or chainrings. Running it with the old chain can cause a plethora of symptoms - all pointing to necessity of chain replacement.
The only other thing I can think of would be a problem with the hub. Looks like you have the RD covered. So hopefully you can provide us with a definitive answer to your oft-repeated problem.
EDIT - Do make sure the lockring on the cassette is on square and not off-angle. Seen that cause some lovely problems!
