That's a trick that has been done for decades. Look to make sure the "B" screw engages the landing on the dropout properly. (The "B" screw is the screw that pulls the derailleur back and tightens the chain. You will see it below the axle looking at the derailleur from the rear. It should be solidly hitting a small protrusion or indent on the dropout.)
