I have noticed the same thing.
I think some graft compatibility issue is at work.
This particular mating is not meant to work.
I notice that even if you wait and let them alone, they never seem to
grow particularly well.
In taking them apart and studying the graft area it looks like they do
not callus very well.
It amy be like different blood types in humans.
More study is needed in this area to be more definitive.
