That is odd, it all should work together just fine. The only thing it could be is the stem is not cut perfectly flat on one side. I have never seen that before though. If it is the steerer tube of the fork causing the issue I would throw the fork away ASAP, but I doubt it is causing the issue. The headset could have worn bearings allowing the top cap to drop in a little more. How old is the headset and has it ever been overhauled? I have never seen a CK headset bearing wear out either.
